Profile of Working-Age Patients with Keloid and Hypertrophic Scar at Dr. Soetomo General Hospital Surabaya in 2014-2017

Introduction: Both keloid and hypertrophic scars are pathological scars that result from a lack of collagen in wound healing. Methods: This was a descriptive retrospective review of 105 patients treated for keloid and hypertrophic scar from 2014 to 2017 using medical records of working-age patients. Private employees account for 10. 7 percent of patients of keloid and 17. 39% hypertrophic scar in patients of hypertrophic scar. Javanese patients with keloid disease and 23. 9 percent patients of hypertrophic scar were Javanese. Patients of keloid and 19. 5 percent hypertrophic scar who have a chronic scar will perform daily indoor activities. Patients of keloid and 26. 09% hypertrophic scars developed a palpable tone, with 17. 86% patients of keloid and 26. 09% showing a skinned tone. Conclusion: Both keloid and hypertrophic scars were mostly developed in 17-25 years old, male, private, Javanese ethnic, and dark skin tone patients, who were addicted to daily indoor activities, caused by trauma and found on the chest, earlobe, and hand, which were treated by corticosteroid injection.
