Author(s): Dr. Yogiraj Nainpuriya and Dr. Biram Chand Mewara
The word “KELOID” has been taken from Greek language (Cheloide) meaning thereby “like crab’s claw”.Alibert 1806 and modified by himself in 1817 An abnormal proliferation of fibroblast collagen fibrils and immature blood vessels usually on a pre-existing scar in dermis surrounded by normal tissues.
A spontaneous keloid has no history of injury or operation and as such there is no scar.
Hypertrophic scar is one in which there is proliferation of fibrous tissue within the limits of scar and this growth becomes inactive in due course of time.
