Abstract

Hypertrophic scars and keloids are a common surgical problem. There is increasing knowledge of the pathology of this condition but the exact pathogenesis is yet unknown. Treatment remains difficult and is associated with high recurrence rates in certain forms. The psychological implications for the patient are enormous and have still to be fully defined. This article is a review of the current aetiology, pathology and management of hypertrophic scars and keloids. Various treatment options are discussed and psychological aspects have been emphasised.
