Shell Ear

Subjective: Absence of the superior antihelical crus, and broadening of the inferior antihelical crus, which runs more horizontally with a sharper "take-off" from the helix than usual


This is a bundled term, consisting of absence of the superior antihelical crus, broad inferior antihelical crus and abnormal orientation of the antihelix. As the term is much used in practice it is kept. In addition, the helix may show variable abnormalities of folding. The crus helix may be more protruding and extend further across the concha than usual.
