Abstract

Ear marks and measurements are often used for identification in the absence of valid fingerprints. Auricular variations were identified in a 22-year-old male university student. Both ears were accompanied by absence of tragus, thick crus helicis, prominent antitragus, long incisura intertragica and downward-sloping convex crus antihelicis. He does not have a known disease. Auricular variations are seen 2% in normal people and 98% in genetic diseases.

Keywords: Variation, Auricula, Tragus, Antitragus
