Lop or Cup Ear

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see a cup-shaped ear often called lop ear. This morphology is a reflection of the lack or underdevelopment of the anti-helix.

PERSPECTIVE: Plastic surgery can be quite an effective treatment. Many individuals have other concurrent dysmorphic signs (~50%).
