Antihelix, Stem, Underdeveloped


Subjective: Decreased protrusion of the antihelical ridge, proximal to its bifurcation, relative to the prominence of a normal helix (Fig. a,b)


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