Keloid is an abnormal wound response in predisposed individuals. It results from a connective tissue response to trauma and occasionally occurs spontaneously. It is one of the most challenging clinical problems, especially in plastic surgery practice. Keloid formation mainly occurs in parts of the body with high concentrations of melanocytes and is rare on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands where melanocyte concentration is minimal. Although keloid formation on the palmar surface is rare, there are a few cases reported in the literature. In this paper, keloid formation on the volar surfaces of the fingers is reported. Although it is rare, there is a potential morbidity of keloid formation on the volar surface of fingers. The most important point concerning keloid formation is prevention.
