Auricle – Embryonal Morphology

Auricle – Embryonal Morphology

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (N. Zymak-Zakutnia, M.D.) see:

  • Ear, asymmetric, helix early embryonal type (U-shaped), no evidence of anti-tragus, anti-helix, etc. (please see the image of the contra-lateral ear).

PERSPECTIVE: dysmorphic ear suggestive of an  embryonal stage in contrast to the morphology of other body structures suggestive of landmarks of near-term morphology.

NOTE: see in patients gallery the rest of the images of this patient (ptPatau-B).
