BACKGROUND
Pseudocyst of the auricle is a common benign disease. Many treatment modalities have been described for this benign condition ranging from simple aspiration to complex cutaneous surgeries involving skin de-roofing and debridement with diamond burr. the aim of treatment is to successfully resolve the seroma without damaging the underlying healthy cartilage, thus maintaining the normal contour of the auricle, and to prevent its recurrence. 
METHODS
In this study we describe incision and drainage of the pseudocyst with auricular splinting. 
RESULTS
Resolution was seen in 100.00 %, skin discolouration in 33.33%, skin thickening in 29.63% and deformity in 25.93% of the patients. 
CONCLUSION
The use of corrugated drain sheet splint is an ingenious method of aural pseudocyst management. This method is simple and can be performed by even less experienced surgeons and highly economical which prevents the recurrence and maintains the auricular aesthetics
