Keloid disorder (KD) is a fibroproliferative ailment of the cutaneous connective tissue secondary to dysregulation in various skin repair and healing processes. This disorder is characterized by excess collagen and/or glycoprotein depositions in the dermis. Age of onset of KD is not well documented. Based on clinical observations, various authors have reported the onset of KD to be between the ages of 10 and 30 years. We report on an African American female who developed bilateral auricular keloids at the age of 9 months. To our knowledge, this is the youngest age at which a patient has been documented to have developed KD.
