Abstract

Abstract Treating keloids and hypertrophic scars is difficult. Here we report our method of treating recurrent keloid and hypertrophic scars. This involves surgical excision associated with intraoperative steroid injection, followed by routine weekly steroid injections for 2–5 weeks dependent on clinical signs and symptoms (pain, pruritus or paraesthesia), and monthly injections for another 3–6 months. The preliminary results thus far are promising.
