May 10-12, 2024 – Seoul, South Korea

Dear Friends and Colleagues, on behalf of the Keloid Research Foundation, and in collaboration with the Department of Dermatology at Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine in Seoul we are delighted to extend a warm welcome, and cordially invite you to join us at the 5th International Keloid Symposium to be held in Seoul, Korea on the 10th, 11th and 12th of May 2024.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together experts in management of keloid disorder from the bench (cutting edge experimental work) to the bedside (therapies). Our goal is to provide you with an array of novel approaches to better understand and manage this challenging condition, by offering the latest updates in diagnosis, prevention, prognosis, and treatment of keloid lesions from a variety of perspectives.

The organizing committee is putting together an unparalleled program that emphasizes both the scientific and clinical content across the breadth of keloid disorder, highlighting cutting edge basic science research to pros and cons of current and newly emerging treatment approaches including surgical management, cryotherapy, chemotherapy, and molecular interventions.

Importantly, we are fully committed to bring together a forum of experts from basic science, dermatopathology, and specialist clinicians with an interest in treating keloid patients, from dermatology, plastic surgery, oncology, pediatric and general surgery, ENT, maxillofacial surgery, and others, in a unique environment for a three-day interactive exchange of ideas and the latest views in the management of keloid disorder.

We look forward to welcoming you to Seoul in May 2024.

Yours sincerely,


The Organizing Committee
