Congenital cleft earlobe

Technique for repair of a triple-lobe type defect

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Congenital cleft earlobe is a rare clinical entity that results from failure of fusion during embryologic development. In contrast to acquired earlobe clefts, congenital defects are usually associated with tissue loss, thereby complicating surgical repair. The authors present the case of a 22-year-old female with a triple-lobe type of congenital cleft earlobe and discuss their technique for repair.
