Arch Dermatol. 1989;125(4):528-530. doi:10.1001/archderm.1989.01670160076014

• A pseudocyst of the auricle (benign idiopathic cystic chondromalacia) is an intracartilaginous cystic swelling of the anterior auricle. The cause is uncertain, and most patients deny any history of inflammation or trauma. A patient had antecedent trauma and a fracture in the conchal cartilage; a simple surgical procedure was used to treat this patient.
