Preauricular sinus and its management


This condition was first described by Van Heusinger in 1864. He also rightly postulated it to be congenital in nature. Most of these patients are symptomatic. Common symptoms include infections, cellulitis, and abscess formation infront of the pinna. Some of these patients may have recurrent infections leading on to embarassing discharge from the sinus. In most patients this condition is identified during routine examination involving ear, nose and throat.
