Abstract

Malignant lesions of external ear are most commonly excised with histologic margin control. But each ear defect is unique and the surgeon often faces a reconstructive challenge after tumor excision. Recently, we experienced a case of auricle cancer developed in 80 year old man with ulcerated lesion on conchal bowl, which was reconstructed with postauricular pull-through flap. We report this case with a review of the literature.
