Resumen

BALDIN, André Víctor; TELICH TARRIBA, José E; INIGO ARROYO, Federico  y  APELLANIZ CAMPO, Armando. Stahl ear and its surgical management. Rev. Fac. Med. (Méx.) [online]. 2018, vol.61, n.6, pp.26-28. ISSN 2448-4865.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201.fm.24484865e.2018.61.6.04.

Introduction:

Stahl's ear presents a low incidence, even in specialized ear reconstruction centers. It is characterized by an abno rmal cartilaginous remnant, extending from the antihelix to the edge of the helix, forming a third crura.

Case report:

A 17-year-old man presented an ear deformity characterized by hypoplasia of the root of the antihelix and the presence of a third crura, which communicates the antihelix to the helix. A resection of third crura and cartilaginous reconstruction of the auricular pavilion was performed, achieving an adequate reconstruction, with good aesthetic results, without size alteration in comparison to the contralateral ear.

Conclusions:

Stahl's deformity is a rare ear deformity that can lead to significant social disruption and stigma. Surgical treatment is the preferential option for handling this deformity, and focuses mainly on the correction of the third crura.
