Case Study 3- Umbilical Keloid
The keloid depicted here was originally triggered by a piercing. Surgery was performed to remove the original keloid at this site, however, a new keloid formed at the site of surgery, much bigger than the one that was removed by surgery.
This patient presented in November 2010 and underwent cryotherapy. The images below depict the keloid and the treatment results, 18 months later.
Four years later, the patient returned with having noticed minor recurrence. The recurrent keloid was once again treated with cryotherapy.
