Accessory Auricles

Description : Accessory auricles differ from pre-auricular tags in that they contain a small island of cartilage.

These accessory auricles are believed to represent the remnant of one of the embryological hillocks.

While both pre-auricular tags and accessory auricles have no clinical significance, they may be excised for cosmetic reasons.
