Red ear syndrome: Perspectives for the otolaryngologist.

Ear Nose Throat J 2018 Dec;97(12):E11-E14

Department of Otolaryngology, Lenox Hill Hospital/Northwell Health, 110-11 72nd Ave., Suite 1B, Forest Hills, NY 11375, USA.

Red ear syndrome (RES) is an unusual, often unrecognized condition that has rarely been reported in the otolaryngology literature despite the presence of symptoms and associated disorders of relevance to the otolaryngologist. When present, RES may have diagnostic value when uncertainties arise in cases of sinus headache and referred otalgia. Despite the appearance of a distinctive red ear, as well as symptoms and associated disorders relating to otolaryngology, discussion of RES is generally limited to neurology-based publications.
