Keloid is a benign proliferative disease of dermal collagen which extends beyond the original wound. Management of keloids is still controversial. Many different treatment modalities may be used for this purpose, however, no one method has been found completely successful. Therefore, we combined three techinques, which is surgical excision, lesional steroid injection and compression, to improve therapeutic outcomes for earlobe keloids. In the first session, surgical excision of the keloid was performed. It was followed with triamcinolone acetonide injetion to the surgical field on the postoperative one week, and then followed at two weekly interval for two months. Slight pressure was applied by earring for six months. The authors found that a combination of three techniques for treatment of ear lobe keloid is recommended even for the recurrent lesion.
