Pseudocyst of the auricle (benign idiopathic cystic chondromalacia) is rare. Only 20 cases have been previously reported in the literature. Our study retrospectively reviews 21 additional cases. We conclude that idiopathic cystic chondromalacia can occur in both sexes, in all races, and at any age. The differential diagnoses for idiopathic ...
