Definition

Microtia is a congenital malformation or deformity of the external ear (pinna). Atresia is the absence (closure) of the external auditory ear canal accompanied with conductive hearing loss.

Facts

Microtia can be unilateral (one side only) or bilateral (affecting both sides). Unilateral Microtia more often affects the right ear than the left. Approximately one in ten children (1:10) with Microtia is affected both sides, known as Bilateral Microtia.
