CONCLUSION: Time to diagnosis of CN was shorter than previously reported, though the high rate of deformities still suggests a significant delay in diagnosis. Increased education of healthcare professionals and people with diabetes-related neuropathy is important to ensure early diagnosis and appropriate management to reduce deformities and complications.

The opioid crisis has attracted increasing commentary during 2017. A recent study has shown that after surgery, in the USA, one in 16 patients will become a chronic opioid user.1 This number does not differ when comparing minor versus major surgery and largely represents inappropriate use of opioid analgesics triggered by overprescribing. This problem emphasises the need to optimise health-care delivery and to develop new, effective, and non-addictive drugs for the treatment of chronic pain.

This article reviews the clinical presentation of aberrant scars and illustrates how they can be differentiated. It outlines their pathophysiology and emphasizes the unique molecular mechanisms underlying each disorder. It also examines how altered expression levels and the distribution of several factors may contribute to their unique clinical characteristics and presentation. Further research is needed to elucidate optimal treatments and preventive measures for these types of aberrant scarring.
