Description of specific diseases of the ear
Here there is an abnormality of the auricle, which appears to be pushed forward and out. It may be unilateral but is more often bilateral (CP-2). In some children it corrects itself with the development of the mastoid process by the second year. It can be particularly noticeable in boys if the hair is worn short, and the child may be subjected to ridicule at school.
