Abstract
Keloids result from excessive production of fibrous tissue during an abnormal wound healing process. Keloids can occur after trauma, and trauma can range from laceration, piercing, bites, surgery, and burns, to other skin conditions such as acne or folliculitis. We present a case of 68-year-old man, which was characterized with a relatively firm, non-tender, mild pigmented mass in his right earlobe. We performed a local excision, together with microscopic analysis. The mass was eventually diagnosed as a keloid scar in the right earlobe. Postoperative adjuvant pressure therapy using magnets was adopted and the postoperative follow-up was maintained without any recurrence. Auricular keloids should be considered in the differential diagnosis regardless of the cause or the age of patient.
