Original Support of an after Piercing Lobular Keloid Scar: About a Case

Keloids are tissue repair formed by exuberant fibrosis appearing after a skin wound, burn, vaccination or post inflammatory (folliculitis or acne lesion). This condition causes standard aesthetic prejudice to those who are affected. Its management is difficult and its evolution meshes recurrences. We report here a case of giant keloid in the right ear lobe after a piercing and its support.
