 en Case Report- Cervical auricles from first and second branchial arches
Maiti Sukumar

Abstract

Cervical auricles were observed in three children. Operation (excision) could be done in two of the children. The anomalous auricle from first branchial arch contained an incomplete "cervico-auricular" sinus along with partial facial nerve palsy. Cervical auricles were also observed in a number of goats and in a pig. Morphological similarity was there in respect of location. Hereditary history was noted in the animals with cervical auricles.

Keywords
