Fulguration, also called electrofulguration, is a procedure in which lesions are destroyed by the use of high frequency current and is essentially similar to cauterization. Fulgration is used to ablate tumors and other lesions such as hemangiomas and warts. It is either performed in an operation theater by a surgeon or an out-patient basis by a surgeon or dermatologist.
