Cauliflower Ear(Deformed Ear)

Abnormal development or deformities of the ear anatomy can cause a range of complications, from cosmetic issues to hearing and development problems. An estimated 6 to 45 percent of children are born with some sort of congenital ear deformity.

SYMPTOMS

You may have swelling, and the area may be red or bruised. So it's important not to shrug off such symptoms if you have received a blow, or multiple blows, to the ear. Prompt treatment can prevent the development of cauliflower ear. But it must be performed before the tissue is compromised by lack of blood flow.

CAUSES

  • The causes of ear deformities are varied. Most ear deformities are congenital, meaning they are present from birth. In rare cases, children develop ear deformities from trauma or disease.
  • In some children, an ear deformity is a symptom of a genetic disorder that can affect multiple body systems, such as goldenhar syndrome and charge syndrome. Ear deformities can be inherited or caused by genetic mutations.
