Post-cautery keloid

History

         A 20-year-old male had a few grouped lesions of molluscum contagiosum on the neck of 3-4 weeks duration. The lesions had been removed aggressively through electrocautery by an unexperienced medical substaff person. Few weeks later a large pinkish-red, ugly-looking scar appeared at site of cautery.
