Several studies have reported on certain aspects of the characteristics of different sites within a keloid lesion, but detailed studies on the keloid dermis at different depths within a keloid lesion are scarce. The aim of this study was to investigate the histology of the keloid dermis at different depths. This study included 19 keloid tissue samples that were collected from 19 patients and 19 normal skin samples, which were harvested from subjects without keloids or hypertrophic scar. Samples were studied by light microscopy using routine hematoxylin and eosin histochemical staining, and immunohistochemistry to detect CD20-positive B-lymphocytes and CD3-positive T-lymphocytes. Sirius Red histochemical staining was used to determine the type of collagen in keloid tissue and normal skin samples. The migratory properties of fibroblasts within the keloid dermis at different depths was compared, using an in vitro migration assay. The findings of this study showed that although the papillary and reticular
Keloid pathogenesis occurs due to the longer duration of inflammation and the increase in the production of several factors such as TGF-β1 that causes the increase of fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis. The role of B4 Leukotriene (LTB4) in keloid pathogenesis particularly in the inflammation phase and tissue proliferation has not been clearly elucidated. The present study was to analyze the levels of LTB4, TGF-β1 and collagen in keloid fibroblast and normal skin fibroblast. Fibroblasts were cultured by applying explant method to the keloid and normal skin of the petient with the keloid. The measurement of the levels of LTB4, TGF-β1 and collagen was conducted by using Elisa method and triplicate was conducted subsequently. Statistic testing was performed through unpaired t test. The experiment was carried out in cell culture laboratory of The Faculty of Medicine Padjajaran University Bandung. The levels of LTB4, TGF-β1 are higher in keloid fibroblast, despite the fact that it does not
TY - JOUR. T1 - Nondestructive imaging of live human keloid and facial tissue using multiphoton microscopy. AU - Da Costa, Victor. AU - Wei, Randy. AU - Lim, Ryan. AU - Sun, Chung Ho. AU - Brown, Jimmy J.. AU - Wong, Brian J.F.. PY - 2008/1/1. Y1 - 2008/1/1.

AU - Lew, Dae Hyun. AU - Park, Jong Chul. AU - Lee, Won Jai. PY - 2015/7/4. Y1 - 2015/7/4. N2 - Background: The regulation of apoptosis, proliferation, and migration of fibroblasts is altered in keloids. The 90-kDa heat shock protein (heat shock protein 90) is known to play a key role in such regulation. Therefore, the authors investigated whether the inhibition of heat shock protein 90 in keloid fibroblasts could induce apoptosis and attenuate keloid fibroblast proliferation and migration. Methods: The authors evaluated heat shock protein 90 expression in keloid tissues with immunohistochemistry. The authors used cell viability [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide] assays and annexin V/propidium iodide staining for apoptosis, a wound healing model and cell tracking system to ...
This picture shows a giant keloid in the ear lobe. Discussion:A keloid is a type of scar which results in an overgrowth of tissue at the site of a healed skin injury. Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules and can vary from pink to flesh-colored or red to dark brown in color. A keloid scar is benign, non-contagious and usually accompanied by severe itchiness, sharp pains and changes in texture.. Keloids are pretty rare in children. More common only in adults. There appears to be a genetic predisposition for tendency to keloid formation.. Management: Surgical excision was done in this patient because of the bulk of the lesion and the cosmetic defect caused by the lesion. As a follow up local injections of depot steroid preparations was administered for a period of 6 months, once in 3 weeks to prevent recurrence.. ...

The second type are keloid scars. Keloid scars are basically a step above hypertrophic scars. It looks almost like theres a tumor growing out of the scars that extends beyond the boundaries of the original incision or the surgical site. Keloid scars are not exclusive to but are more common in people who have darker Fitzpatrick skin types, and Asian skin also tends to have an increased risk of keloids. Latin skin will sometimes have an increased risk, and rarely we still do see it in Caucasian or lighter skinned people as well. The main point is that those darker pigmented patients will have a higher risk for naturally forming keloids. They are more significant and they are much more difficult to treat and so it is important to prevent them. That means that if somebody has a history of keloid scars or a family history of keloid scars you really want to try and avoid any injury to the skin itself. You want to avoid piercings, tattoos, and basically try to avoid any sort of trauma to the skin. In ...
Keloids appear a few time after the original surgery or wound, hardly subside with time, produce out of the limits of the original injury, (a slight wound can create a big keloid), are independent of skin motion (such as earlobe keloids), hardly happen across joints and might develop much worse after surgery without concomitant steps to avoid reappearance.. The occurrence of keloid scarring growths in blacker skinned persons but not ever blacker skinned people gets them. In spite of that my keloid affected persons are mostly Afro-American followed by Asians and then those of non-European Hispanic ancestry. I have only had some Caucasian patients with these issues. Keloids have not been reported in albinos of any competition, suggesting a possible character of skin pigment in this kind of scarring.. There is an increased occurrence of keloid creation running in relatives so it is inherited to a few degree. Keloid scarring does not follow the similar pattern of development, steadying, and ...

Keloids are an overgrowth of connective tissue that forms in response to injury such as surgery, piercing, tattoos, certain skin conditions and/or other trauma. Keloids may develop quickly or may take years to develop.. Although keloids are non-cancerous and generally harmless, they can be unsightly and sometimes associated with pain, itching or irritation. Some keloids feel soft and rubbery, while others are firm and hard. Many start as red, but often the color decreases over time and they become firm pink or skin colored lesions.. Keloids tend to develop in certain areas of the body, including:. ...
The paralysis of the external branch of spinal nerve is very rare. It manifests clinically by a weakness and abnormal morphology of the shoulder. We must think about it in front of any simple surgery of the cervical region. We report the case of a 20 year old patient, who consulted several doctors for pain and progressive weakness of the left shoulder appeared a few days after resumption of a keloid scar complicating surgical excision of a cervical lipoma operated some months earlier. Physical examination revealed a strength of the left shoulder listed on 3 without articular limitation, atrophy of the trapezius muscle with ipsilateral asymmetry and fall of the left shoulder. A lesion of spinal nerve was suspected and an EMG was executed. The EMG objectified a partial lesion of the left spinal Nerve. The patient was sent in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery for nerve repair. The achievement of the external branch of spinal nerve is manifested by pain and weakness in the shoulder triggered by the
PURPOSE: To study the integration of keloid heterograft in hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) cheek pouch. METHODS: The sample is formed by 18 male hamsters, heterogenic ones, aged between 10 and 14 weeks. Keloid fragments were obtained from keloid scars of the breast region of adult female mulatto patient. Each hamster received keloid fragments into both of its pouches, in a total of 36 grafted fragments. Animals were distributed into 6 groups for having their grafts assessed in the days 5, 12, 21, 42, 84, and 168. A macroscopic assessment is performed by comparing the pouch containing the grafted fragment, at each time point, with the same pouch in the immediate post surgical moment through a comparison of standardized photographs. Under microscope, the presence of blood vases is considered within the conjunctive tissue of the grafted fragment, as a criterion of its integration. Other events, as keratin secretion, the presence of cellular infiltrated, epithelium and keloid collagen fibers aspects ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The effect of carboxymethyl-chitosan on proliferation and collagen secretion of normal and keloid skin fibroblasts. AU - Chen, Xi Guang. AU - Wang, Zhen. AU - Liu, Wan Shun. AU - Park, Hyun Jin. PY - 2002/12. Y1 - 2002/12. N2 - In this study, different molecular weight CM-chitosans were prepared and the effects on the growth and collagen secretion of normal skin fibroblasts and keloid fibroblasts were investigated in vitro. CM-chitosan promoted the proliferation of the normal skin fibroblast significantly but inhibited the proliferation of keloid fibroblast. The higher CM-chitosan concentration had a higher initial effect and the lower CM-chitosan concentration had a longer affecting time to the normal skin fibroblast. The lower molecular weight CM-chitosan had significant twofold activities. The CM-chitosan could reduce the ratio of type I/III collagen in keloid fibroblast by inhibiting the secretion of collagen type I; and had no effect on the secretion of types I and III ...
This trial will assess the safety and efficacy of 500ng Juvista per linear cm of wound margin administered by intradermal injection following the excision of keloid scars on the ear lobe. Ear lobe keloids commonly occur after ear piercing and can be particularly distressing for patients as they are very difficult to conceal and are usually bilateral. As the recurrence rate and growth rate of keloids can vary significantly between individuals, trial subjects will have bilateral ear lobe keloids and will act as their own control. One ear lobe will be treated with Juvista following keloid excision and one with placebo ...
A keloid is the formation that a type of scar which, depending on its maturity, is composed mainly of either type III (early) or type I (late) collagen. It is a result of an overgrowth of granulation tissue (collagen type 3) at the site of a healed skin injury which is then slowly replaced by collagen type 1. Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules, and can vary from pink to flesh-coloured or red to dark brown in colour. A keloid scar is benign and not contagious, but sometimes accompanied by severe itchiness, pain, and changes in texture. In severe cases, it can affect movement of skin. Here are some natural remedies for keloids.. ...
Abstract. Background: Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a process whereby epithelial cells lose cell-cell contacts and acquire expression of mesenchymal components and manifest a migratory phenotype. Recent studies indicated that EMT is involved in the development of keloids. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the mechanisms of the effects of metformin in hypoxia-induced EMT in keloid fibroblasts (KFs).. Methods: KFs were cultured in a hypoxia incubator to induce EMT and were treated with or without metformin. Cell viability was evaluated by a cell counting kit 8 (CCK-8), and cell migration was measured by the transwell assay. The expression levels of HIF-1α, E-cadherin, vimentin, phosphorylated p70s6k (p-p70s6k) and pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) were evaluated by western blotting.. Results: Hypoxia promoted EMT in KFs. Metformin significantly inhibited the expression of HIF-1α and partially abolished hypoxia-induced EMT. PKM2 is involved in hypoxia-induced EMT of KFs and ...

Keloids represent a pathologic fibrosis which occurs in the skin after trauma and which grow beyond the boundaries of injury. Keloids occur in people of all racial backgrounds; however, individuals of African descent are more susceptible to the disease. A familial disposition to keloid formation has long been recognized, but the genetic basis for this racial and familial predisposition has not been identified. We hypothesize that the increased risk is a direct result of one or more disease susceptibility genes. We will pursue two approaches, which are presented as two study modules. In module 1, we will carry out a family study. We will identify affected pedigrees, each containing at least 3 individuals with keloids. Blood will be obtained and Epstein Barr virus-transformed permanent B cell lines will be established. We anticipate taking two analytic strategies. We will use candidate gene analysis, focusing initially on the CBP and TGF1B genes and a recently identified locus on chromosome 14, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Interleukin-13 modulates collagen homeostasis in human skin and keloid fibroblasts. AU - Oriente, Alfonso. AU - Fedarko, Neal S.. AU - Pacocha, Sarah E.. AU - Huang, Shau Ku. AU - Lichtenstein, Lawrence M.. AU - Essayan, David M.. PY - 2000/3/1. Y1 - 2000/3/1. N2 - Interleukin (IL)-13 has been implicated in the pathogenesis of various diseases characterized by fibrosis. We describe the effects of IL-13 on collagen homeostasis from normal (NF) and keloid (KF) fibroblasts and compare these effects with those of IL-4 and transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1. Total collagen generation was up-regulated in NF after 48 h of stimulation by IL-13; in KF, IL-13 stimulated a more rapid collagen response. The kinetics and magnitude of collagen generation induced by IL-13 were equivalent to those induced by similar concentrations of IL-4 and TGF-β1. Collagen type I production paralleled total collagen generation from both NF and KF; however, IL-4-induced collagen type I and total collagen ...
Keloid is mainly composed of collagen and reasons a type of scar at the skin which is rather purple in colour. Keloids look like fibrous nodules or rubbery lesions and are company. Actually, its because of the overgrown granulation tissue after a pores and skin injury is healed and sooner or later, is replaced by way of collagen. The most commonplace areas which can be affected by Keloids are chest, palms, neck and ear lobes. The scar is generally innocuous however infrequently, it could make your skin really feel pain and itching.. Causes: Keloid is principally related to pores and skin injuries and subsequently, may also be led to by means of following components: ...

Keloids are thick, puckered, itchy clusters of scar tissue that grow beyond the edges of the wound or incision. They are often red or darker in color than the surrounding skin. Keloids occur when the body continues to produce the tough, fibrous protein known as collagen after a wound has healed.. Keloids can appear anywhere on the body, but theyre most common over the breastbone, on the earlobes, and on the shoulders. They occur more often in dark-skinned people than in those who are fair. The tendency to develop keloids lessens with age.. Keloids are often treated by injecting a steroid medication directly into the scar tissue to reduce redness, itching, and burning. In some cases, this will also shrink the scar.. If steroid treatment is inadequate, the scar tissue can be cut out and the wound closed with one or more layers of stitches. This is generally an outpatient procedure, performed under local anesthesia. You should be back at work in a day or two, and the stitches will be removed in a ...

Keloids are locally aggressive scars that typically invade into healthy surrounding skin and cause both physical and psychosocial distress to the patient. These pathological scars occur following minimal skin trauma after a variety of causes including burns and trauma. Although the pathogenesis of keloid disease is not well understood, it is considered to be the end product of an abnormal healing process. The aim of this review was to investigate the molecular and cellular pathobiology of keloid disease in relation to the normal wound healing process. This review presents a detailed account of individual phases of the healing process and how they may potentially be implicated in aberrant raised scar formation, which may help in clarifying the mechanisms involved in keloid disease pathogenesis..

A keloid is an abnormal proliferation of scar tissue that forms at the site of cutaneous injury (eg, on the site of a surgical incision or trauma); it does not regress and grows beyond the original margins of the scar. Keloids should not be confused with hypertrophic scars, which are raised scars that do not grow beyond the boundaries of the ...
The best treatment is prevention in patients with a known predisposition. This includes preventing unnecessary trauma or surgery (including ear piercing, elective mole removal), whenever possible. Any skin problems in predisposed individuals (e.g., acne, infections) should be treated as early as possible to minimize areas of inflammation. Treatment of a keloid scar is age dependent. Radiotherapy, anti-metabolites and corticoids would not be recommended to be used in children, in order to avoid harmful side effects, like growth abnormalities.[9] In adults, corticosteriods combined with 5-FU and PDL in a triple therapy, enhance results and diminish side effects.[9] Further prophylactic and therapeutic strategies include pressure therapy, silicone gel sheeting, intra-lesional triamcinolone acetonide (TAC), cryosurgery, radiation, laser therapy, IFN, 5-FU and surgical excision as well as a multitude of extracts and topical agents.[10] Surgical excision is currently still the most common treatment ...

Hypertrophic and Keloid are the most common forms of scars. These types of scars have a raised appearance that extends over a formerly injured area. Keloid Scars differ from other hypertrophic scars in that they can continue to grow and become a type of benign tumor. What exactly causes this overproduction of collagen is still up for debate. What is known is that a decrease in cross-linked (basket weave) collagen and an increase in soluble collagen is present in this type of scarring. It is also known that genetic factors play a role in who is more likely to get these types of scars.. Atrophic scars, on the other hand, are scars that have a sunken appearance. They are most commonly the result of acne, chicken pocks, or infections of the skin. They can also be caused by muscle and fat tissue below the scar area being destroyed, possibly during an inflammation process resulting from an injury, which results in the loss of the support structure under the scar, hence the sunken appearance.. Finally, ...

Aspirin can reduce the appearance of acne and pimples, which take away the beauty of your face. The salicylic acid in aspirin helps reduce acne and pimples by removing oil and dead skin cells that are clogging them. It also aids in reducing inflammation, the root of redness and pain, two common symptoms of skin breakouts.. You should crush 2-3 aspirin tablets and mix them with a little lemon juice or just plain water to form a paste. Apply it to the acne or pimples and leave it on for a few minutes before washing off thoroughly. Repeat once daily.. 3.Soothes stings and bites.
