Ear Helix

Ear Helix

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (S. Kalynka, M.D.) see a dysmorphic left ear (see a previous image of this ear) – the rim of the helix is hypoplastic and relatedly the antihelix is prominent. Please see related images of this patient including of the contralateral ear (asymmetry).

PERSPECTIVE: Many patients with an unrelated dysmorphic syndrome (Beckwith-Wiedeman or macroglossia – omphalocele) have “skin pits” on the same area of the helix.
