Background: Seroma formation is a common problem following axillary dissection. It is probably caused by a local inflammatory response. Local steroids may prevent this problem by inhibiting inflammatory response at the wound site.Methods: This randomized prospective study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of local triamcinolone injection on seroma formation following axillary dissection. In addition, other wound complications were recorded. A total of 44 women who underwent axillary dissection were randomized to receive either 40 mg intracavitary triamcinolone (Group T, n=22) or saline (Group C, n=22) on their first postoperativevisit. Drains were removed if 24-hour drainage was
