Pubic Keloids – Case Study 8 – C-Section Pubic Keloid:
This patient presented with a C-Section Keloid to our office in September 2017. Patient's medical history was significant for having had a C-section in 2007. About a year after the procedure, a keloid started forming at that the site of surgery. The keloid was surgically removed in 2009, however, it regrew and by 2012 it became larger than the original keloid. In 2013 the keloid was removed during another c-section, yet it regrew again and within two years, it became quite thick and symptomatic, causing itching, burning and discomfort.
Patient came to see Dr. Tirgan in September of 2017. The image below depicts the appearance of this keloid when she came in for consultation.
post c-section keloid
This keloid was treated with two rounds of cryotherapy, first in October 2017, and then in April 2018.
The patient returned to our office in January 2020 for issues unrelated to this pubic keloid. The image below shows the appearance of this keloid three years after the treatment. The mass of this keloid is reduced by over 95%. The patient has been happy with the outcome and was not concerned with the remnant of the pubic keloid.
