Antihelix, Stem, Prominent


Antihelix, Stem, Prominent

Subjective: Increased protrusion of the antihelical ridge, proximal to its bifurcation, relative to the prominence of the helix (Fig. d,e)


This finding is highly variable, and the range is illustrated in the figure to the right. The relative prominence is attributable to either increased volume of the cartilage and/or the acuteness of the folding angle. Interpretation of relative antihelical prominence may be difficult when the conchal anatomy is distorted, for example a Cupped ear.
