Abstract

Keloid scars are commonly found on the ears. Treatment modalities include compression, intralesional steroid injection, and surgical excision with or without radiotherapy, depending on the size and location of the keloid scar. Excision may be a curative solution, but it always requires the immediate reconstruction of the excised defect. Herein, we report the case of a keloid scar located at the helical base of the auriculotemporal sulcus that was treated by excision and a V-Y temporal advancement flap.
