Ear Tags

Ear Tags

Ear tags are benign accessory skin and/or cartilage growths that can be found in front of the ears of infants. These appendages can occur in isolation or as part of certain syndromes such as hemifacial microsomia, Goldenhar syndrome and first and second branchial arch syndromes. Because some babies with accessory ear tags have associated hearing loss, these children should have newborn hearing evaluation to screen for any hearing loss. Ear tags can be removed via simple excision in either the office or operating room setting, depending upon number and size of the tags.
