Keloid Triple Treatment: A Case Report
Abstract: Keloids are overgrowths of scar tissue that extend beyond the wound border for an unknown reason. Many courses of treatment are available, but none have a 100% success rate, and many have high recurrence rates. The best result can be achieved after a combination of many treatments modality with surgery. This article presents the case of a disturbance keloid that was treated by surgical excision, post - surgery local corticosteroid injection (betamethasone dipropionate) 1ml subcutaneous monthly for three months while intralesional corticosteroid injection in other studies, and topical silicone gel application for six months. An excellent outcome was observed without recurrence. The patient, satisfied and confident after treatment, was free from recurrence for about one year after excision and medical treatment.
