In the present study, it could be concluded that dermatological conditions involving ear pinna
may be a major etiological factor for aural hematoma rather than otitis externa which was in accordance with Joyce (2000) except in one case where bilateral aural hematoma with otits externa was present.
Pre-operative management performed with aseptical preparation of affected ear pinna
by clipping and shaving of hair on both sides (convex and concave surface) after moisturizing the region with antiseptic soap.
In group II, dressing of wound + antibiotic and analgesic were as in group I, followed by treatment with low level laser therapy (LLLT) for 7 days continuously for 4 min on convex surface of ear pinna
with frequency of 30 Hz and 2.
Aural haematomas are the most common physical injury of ear pinna
and most apparently on concave surface (Slatter, 2003).
Respective standard measurements (in millimeters) were: total length, 237, 238; tail length, 98, 97; hind foot length, 42, 42; and height of ear pinna
, 16, 15.
A male Malabari kid was presented with history of head shaking and swelling on concave side of left ear pinna
Otoscopic examination revealed erythema of ear canal, purulent aural discharge with foul odour, congestion of vertical ear canal and thickening of ear pinna
Otitis externa is inflammation of external ear canal distal to tympanic membrane with or without involvement of ear pinna
The inner cartilaginous lining of ear pinna
was sutured with skin of line of incision to completely close the wound.
These typical lesions are commonly found on face, around muzzle area and ear pinna
