Case Report- Cervical auricles from first and second branchial arches|
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.
