Although reports of local injection of MTX in the treatment of EP appeared to be promising, our results do not confirm the efficacy of this approach. Our experience was sufficiently discouraging to prompt discontinuation of a randomized trail; our hope is that others will add to the accumulating data base so that the role of local injection of MTX can be clarified.
