There was no history of increase in size of the lesion or urinary complaint or dribbling of urine from the umbilical lesion during micturition. There was no history suggestive of abdominal pain or diarrhea. There was history of intermittent bleeding from the lesion. History was suggestive of first-degree burn over back after accidental spillage of hot water at the age of two years, followed by development of post-burn keloid.
