Overturned Helices Ears

Figure 1.129. Normal ears with lack of good cartilage development may appear as large flattened ears bilaterally. These are often caused by prolonged intrauterine compression as a result of oligohydramnios.

Abnormal Ear Helix
Figure 1.128. The normal ear shows many variations in the folds in relation to the cartilage. For example, in this infant poor development and deformations caused transient abnormalities in the appearance of the ears.

Lupus Utero

Figure 1.130. An overturned helix (a folded ear) is usually a temporary deformation secondary to in utero position.

Figure 1.132. Positional deformation of a normal ear secondary to the presence of pressure of the infant's shoulder on the lobe of die ear in utero. Note that the pinna is crumpled upward and forward.

Normal Infant Ears

Figure 1.133. This is an example of an infant with a lop ear. Weakness or absence of the auricular muscles result in various deformities of the auricle. When the superior muscle band is absent, a lop ear occurs. If only the posterior slip is missing, a protruding ear is seen. If both muscle bands are absent, a cupped ear is formed. These characteristic abnormalities of the auricle are more commonly seen in infants with severe hypotonia.

Newborn Flattened Pinna

Figure 1.134. Poor development of the ear can be seen in association with a lack of or decreased fetal movement.

Syndrome Potter

Figure 1.135. In diis infant widi Potter's syndrome note die slanted and low-set ear. Ears are considered slanted when die angle of slope of die auricle exceeds fifteen degrees from die perpendicular. Low placement and slanted auricles often go togedier and usually present a lag in morphogenesis. Low-set ears are defined as diose where die helix meets die cranium at a level below diat of a horizontal plane widi die comers of die orbit. The presence of low-set ears can be determined by extending a line joining bodi inner candii. This accounts for any upward or downward slanting of die eyes. The illusion of low ear placement can be created by an unusually large head as is seen in hydrocephalus or by a small external ear. The pseudohydrocephalus (catch-up growdi of die head) in very low birdiweight infants may create die impression of low-set ears in an odierwise normal infant.

Figure 1.136. Poorly folded small and posteriorly angulated ears occurred with decreased fetal movement in this infant with the fetal akinesia syndrome.

Figure 1.137. Note the attenuation and backward sweep of the upper helix in the ears of this infant. This is called the Mozart ear as it is said to have been present in Mozart and his family.
