Abstract:   (155 Views)

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. In this study we describe incision and drainage of the pseudocyst with auricular splinting. The results of the study were Resolution in 100.00 %, Skin discolouration in 33.33%, Skin thickening in 29.63% and Deformity in 25.93% of the patients. Auricular splinting post incision drainage is thus one of the effective modalities in managing the Pseudocyst of auricle.
