Certain malformations may occur during the embryonic development of the ear. Accessory auricle has a wide range from a small elevation of skin to a large size to resemble an additional auricle, where the latter is called polyotia. This condition is defined as an accessory auricle that is large enough to closely resemble an additional pinna rather than a skin remnant and cartilage. Polyotia, also known as mirror ear or accessory ear, is a type of ear anomaly in the tragus area, but this term refers to substantial anomalies which resemble an accessory ear, unlike a pre-auricular tag...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the surgical treatment and pathologic mechanism of polyotia. METHODS: The operative methods for polyotia were flexible. The main procedures were aimed at the remodeling of tragus with the redundant tissue. Tissue transplantation was used to correct the depression deformity. Compound auricular tissue transplantation and Z-plasty were used for correction of the malformation at the posterior part of polyotia. RESULTS: From 2003 to 2008, 9 patients with polyotia were treated...

BACKGROUND: Polyotia is an extremely rare type of congenital external ear malformation, which is defined as an accessory ear that is large enough to resemble an additional pinna. The terms 'mirror ear' or 'accessory ear' are sometime used. We present our methods in correcting this malformation and summarise the aetiology. METHODS: The posterior part of the polyotia may presents with a normal ear, a constricted ear or a microtic ear. Free auricular composite tissue transplantation was used to correct the constricted ear...

Goldenhar syndrome is a well-known developmental anomaly of maxillofacial skeleton and hemi-facial soft tissue, was later included to a broader classification called oculo-ariculo-vertebral spectrum. Here we report a patient presenting goldenhar syndrome with accessory auricula, defined as polyotia, coloboma and bifid tongue.

Polyotia (mirror ear) is an extremely rarely reported congenital anomaly of the external ear. The aetiology of this condition is unclear, and there are few descriptions of surgical techniques used. We aimed to review our experience with this condition by performing a retrospective review of the cases treated in our unit. Eight cases of polyotia treated at a referral centre for ear reconstruction in a 12 year period (1992-2004) were reviewed. Patient demographic data and associated syndromes were recorded. Operative techniques used in the cases were studied...

A rare case of polyotia in a 7-year old boy associated with first arch syndrome is reported. The accessory auricle formed a well defined helix and conchal bowl located anterior to a normal auricle and an atretic external auditory meatus. Surgical resection and reconstruction resulted in a good cosmetic outcome.

Polyotia is an extremely rare congenital anomaly of the external ear. Only four case reports are documented in the literature. A 13-month-old child with a mirror-image duplication of the left auricle was operated on in a one-stage corrective procedure. The duplicated portion of the affected ear was positioned anteriorly and measured approximately two-thirds the size of the posterior, normally oriented portion. There were two fully developed conchae and one fully developed and one partially developed anthelix and lobule...

A rare case of polyotia in Brachmann-de Lange syndrome (Goodman and Gorlin, 1977) is presented and a method for the surgical correction of the duplicated auricle briefly outlined. A review of relevant literature is included in the discussion.

From June 1st, 1989 to May 31st, 1990, 16,987 consecutive newborns were examined at the No. 48 Gynecological Pediatric Hospital of the IMSS National Medical Center, looking for external congenital malformations including esophageal atresias, anorectal malformations and congenital hip luxations, all easily detected during a routine exploration. Each deformed newborn assigned two control patients the following two newborn babies showing no birth defects. 308 deformed newborns were detected, an incidence of 1...

An extremely rare case of polyotia is presented. A seven-month old male had a congenital deformity of the right auricle, appearing like a large accessory auricular appendage. It had a small helix-like protuberance connecting to a very long helical crus; there was a conchal cavity between the external auditory meatus and the protuberance. Surgery led to good results. The surgical procedure is described and the literature concerning polyotia discussed. Our diagnostic criteria for polyotia and the accessory auricular appendage are presented...
