Creased lobule

Creased lobule

Description : The appearance of a crease running across the skin of the lobule is a minor deformity which does not appear until later life.

Most commonly the crease begins where the ear lobe attaches to the head and angles diagonally downwards and backwards to the edge of the lobule.

This sign is associated with increasing age and also independently with increased incidence of obstructive coronary artery disease.
