POTGIETER, M D  e  GIAQUINTO-CILLIERS, M G C. Mythological ears, a real deformity: A case of bilateral Stahl's ears in a South African girl. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.2, pp.68-69. ISSN 1999-7671.

Stahl's ear is a rare congenital deformity of the pinna with a third crus resulting in an 'elf-like', 'Vulcan-like' or 'satyr-like' appearance with pointing of the ears. Early recognition of the condition allows successful early conservative treatment and may avoid the need for surgical correction at a later stage. We present the case of a 7-year-old South African girl with bilateral Stahl's ears, who presented with psychological distress as a result of being ridiculed at her school. The deformity was surgically corrected with a good cosmetic result and patient satisfaction.
