Abstract


Auricular pseudocyst (APC) also known as idiopathic cystic chondromalacia, is a very uncommon cystic lesion at the auricle. Because of rarity of APC, it can be misdiagnosed or delayed in treatment. Those mismanagements could leave disfiguring auricular deformities. APC typically presents as a unilateral asymptomatic swelling in the upper part of auricle in males. Intracartilagenous cystic degeneration is characteristic histologic findings. Man- agements aim at removal the cyst without relapsing and restoring the original shape of the auricle. However, un- til now trials have not been perfectly satisfied in terms of recurrence. In this article we report two cases of APC that was successfully treated by surgery?specifically, excision of the anterior or both leaves of cystic wall with adhesive surgical tape compression?and yielded confident results with good cosmesis. There were no recur- rence of follow-up after excision.
