Abstract

A rare case of huge cutaneous horn of the ear was presented. The lesion was totally excised over the auricular cartilage with a 5-mm margin and the defect was closed with a full-thickness skin graft taken from the preauricular area. To the best of our knowledge, there is no any report of this kind of interesting cutaneous corn of the ear.
