Abstract

Keloids are defined as scars that extend beyond the borders of the original wound, do not regress spontaneously and tend to recur following excision. We report a 13-year-old boy presenting with a huge keloid formation on the penis after circumcision as a rare location for keloid formation and as a rare complication after circumcision. Therapeutic strategy consisted of surgical excision followed by intralesional corticosteroid injection and silicone gel sheet application.
