Post traumatic hematoma with perichondritis with resultant cauliflowerdeformity



Post traumatic hematoma and then perichondritis of pinna which was solely treated by oral antibiotics by general surgeon.

Thickened pinna as seen from behind in a case of post traumatic perichondritis.

Three incisions were given to drain the  hematoma and infected material. two quilting sutures were given to keep the dead space minimum inside.


Same patient with non tender pinna after 2 weeks of surgical treatment coupled with antibiotics.

Same patient as above after surgical treatment. See the irregular surface persisting resulting in cauliflower deformity. Patient in pain free now.
