Epidermnoid cysts are henign, cutaneous cysts which commonly occur on face, neck and trunk. Retroauricular epidermoid cyst is rare reported which should be differentiated from auricle pseudocyst, lipoma, steatocystoma and fibroma. The hitopathological examination is a gold standard of diagnosis. Read More
Background: Auricular pseudocyst is a rare, asymptomatic, cystic-like swelling of the auricle that may pose a diagnostic challenge to the clinician. If inadequately treated, recurrences and ear deformities may ensue.

Literature regarding moxibustion and fire needling for the past 60 years has been collected, screened, included, reviewed and abstracted. Read More
An auricular pseudocyst is a benign cystic lesion of the auricular cartilage. When not recognized, it is a clinical presentation that can easily be misdiagnosed and subsequently be mistreated leading to unsatisfactory esthetical results or disease recurrence. A patient was presented with bilateral pseudocysts, which were surgically excised. Read More
Aim: To ascertain a definitive treatment modality for a frequently recurring condition, pseudocyst of pinna in the form of deroofing and compression.
Materials And Methods: Thirty patients were diagnosed with pseudocyst of pinna from July 2011 to March 2013. All 30 patients underwent surgical deroofing of the pseudocyst along with compression by buttoning. Read More
Objective: To introduce a novel modified surgical procedure of excision of anterior cartilage of the pseudocyst along with plastic sheet compression for the treatment of auricular pseudocyst and ascertain the effect of the surgical modality of this disease.
Objective: Auricular seroma is a cystic swelling filled with serous fluid. It occurs spontaneously or following trauma. Successful treatment of the seroma remains a challenge because this disease has a high propensity for recurrence. Read More
Introduction: Pseudocyst of pinna is an uncommon condition hardly encountered in routine ENT practice. The involvement is usually seen in scaphoid, triangular fossa, and antihelix. Medical treatment is ineffective. Read More
Objective: We investigated lactate dehydrogenase isoenzyme patterns in the cyst fluid of auricular pseudocysts and autogenous blood, to assist the diagnosis of auricular pseudocyst.
Methods: Twenty patients with auricular pseudocysts participated in this study conducted in Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital between February 2007 and June 2010. Patterns of lactate dehydrogenase in cyst fluid and autogenous blood were analysed. Read More
Purpose: To describe a man with pseudocyst of the auricle, summarize the salient features of this condition, and review other sports-associated dermatoses of the ear.
Background: Pseudocyst of the auricle is an intracartilaginous collection of viscous straw-colored fluid typically located in the triangular fossa of the upper half of the auricle. It is usually asymptomatic. Read More
A 48-year-old white man presented with a 2-month history of a lump on his right ear following purported exposure to the cold. The patient denied any history of trauma, rubbing, insect bite, or inflammation at the site. The patient was otherwise healthy and was not taking any medications. Read More
The aims of the article were to study the clinical characteristic of patients with pseudocysts and to compare different common modalities of treatment and introduce the concept of observation in pseudocyst management. Twenty-eight patients were diagnosed with pseudocyst of the auricle between June 2009 and June 2011 in a medical college hospital. The patients were divided into four groups each of seven patients on the basis of primary treatment offered. Read More
Background: Punch instrument is a circular blade that can be used for many diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in different medical and surgical specialties. Punch surgery (or biopsy) is achieved by using this versatile punch blade under local anesthesia. Basic punch surgery is quick and easy to learn. Read More
Abstract Auricular pseudocyst is clinically characterized by asymptomatic, non-inflammatory benign cystic swelling, usually located on the anterior or posterior helix. Recurrences have been observed frequently after simple drainage or aspiration of the lesions. Certain treatment modalities for the condition have been reported with variable success, complications and cosmetic results. Read More
Auricular pseudocyst is a benign idiopathic disease, which typically presents as painless spontaneous swelling over the anterior part of the auricle. It has usually been diagnosed in young healthy male patients. Its aetiology remains unknown, but hypothetically congenital dysplasia or chronic low-grade trauma could be the main causes. Read More
Objective: The aims of the article were to study the epidemiological profile of pseudocyst of pinna in non-Chinese population, to propose a hormonal basis of pseudocyst formation, and to compare 2 commonly used treatment modalities of incision drainage with compression and deroofing with compression, so as to ascertain the definitive treatment of this frequently recurring condition.
Material And Methods: Twenty-nine patients were diagnosed with pseudocyst of the auricle between June 2005 and December 2006 in a medical college hospital. All the patients were initially subjected to aspiration with contour dressing. Read More
Pseudocyst of the auricle is characterized by asymptomatic swelling caused by an intracartilaginous fluid accumulation. If left untreated, permanent deformity of the pinna may occur. Many modalities of treatment have been reported. Read More
Pseudocyst of the auricle is a relatively uncommon condition in which serous fluid accumulates between intracartilaginous space of the ear and manifests as a painless, fluctuant outer ear swelling. Pseudocysts of the auricle have been reported in healthy individuals without clear precipitating or causative factors, with little information on this entity in patients with atopic dermatitis. Here, we describe a case of recurrent pseudocysts of the auricle in a young adult with active facial and ear atopic dermatitis. Read More
An auricular pseudocyst is a fluid filled cavity unlined by epithelium in the intracartilaginous space of the ear. Clinically, it presents as a painless outpouching on the upper anterior surface of the auricle with sterile straw coloured fluid found upon aspiration. If left untreated, permanent deformity of the pinna may result. Read More
Pseudocyst of the pinna, a benign idiopathic cystic swelling is an uncommon condition. In the medline search there are over 113 cases reported in literature. Engel in 1966 reported the incidence in Chinese community. Read More
Auricular pseudocysts are a benign condition characterized by the asymptomatic, usually unilateral swelling of the helix or antihelix. The condition is often difficult to treat because recurrences and subsequent auricular deformities are common. We successfully treated a patient with an auricular pseudocyst of the left ear using needle aspiration followed by application of a surgical bolster. Read More
Objectives: Pseudocyst of the auricle is characterized by asymptomatic swelling caused by an intracartilaginous accumulation of fluid. If left untreated, permanent deformity of the pinna may occur. Many modalities of treatment have been reported, but problems regarding recurrence and appearance remain. Read More
Objective: The aim of the study is to describe the histologic spectrum in the pseudocyst of the auricle and to identify any consistent histologic features of this condition.
Study Design: A prospective study was performed in which the tissue specimen from patients with pseudocyst of the auricle treated at the Department of Otolaryngology, Singapore General Hospital during a 1-year period was sent for histology.
Methods: Consecutive patients with pseudocyst of the auricle who were treated had their tissue specimen sent for histology. Read More
