Clinical observations make it possible in most cases to differentiate between keloid and hypertrophic scars. This suggests that different biological factors are involved in the two groups. In clinical practice in the United Kingdom most keloid scars occur spontaneously. In black-skinned people and orientals the factors of keloid and hypertrophic scars may overlap and potentiate each other.
