Most ear deformities or malformations of the ear are congenital (present at birth), although some can occur due to disease or trauma later in life. Ear deformities can be a symptom of a genetic disorder, such as CHARGE or Goldenhar syndromes, or the result of a genetic mutation.
While some ear deformities are only a cosmetic concern, other ear anomalies can affect nearby bones, nerves, cartilage, and muscles. Hearing loss and developmental delays can also be associated with ear deformities.
