Granulex is an aerosolized spray (Dow B. Hickman Pharmaceuticals, Sugar Land, TX 77487) that contains trypsin, Peru balsam, and castor oil. It has been available for many years as a topical spray for the treatment of decubitus ulcers. We used Granulex to promote tissue healing of a necrotic ulcer of the oral mucosa in a patient with advanced oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
