Abstract

Keloid formation on the hands and the feet is very rare but should always be anticipated as a possible complication after surgery. Failure to recognise the potential for keloid may result in a severe deformity that is functionally and cosmetically undesirable. We report severe keloid formation after simple release of polysyndactyly of the feet of a 2-year-old child.
