Constricted Ear

Constricted ear, also know as lop or cup ear, is characterized by the partial absence of skin and cartilage involving the helical rim, scapha and/or concha. In its least complex form, lidding of the superior helical rim is present. Children with constricted ear may benefit from a non-surgical procedure called ear molding.
