"We’ve selected our image of the week. This patient presented with multiple massive keloids across her back. While the pathways that cause these growths to appear are not well understood, it is known that this process represents an exaggerated response to tissue injury. A common challenge with keloids is their removal - surgical excision is associated with up to 100% recurrence. However, there are some treatments that can reduce their reappearance. See this image in Figure 1 to learn about these treatments." By figure1 on Instagram
