Common congenital deformities of the ear include varying degrees of prominent ears and of microtia. Inverted conchal bowl is a very rare congenital deformity. In this condition, the anterior concavity of the concha is replaced by convexity, resulting in an abnormal appearance, as well as functional problems in the of use earpiece devices. This condition has been reported only once in a series of four paediatric cases, wherein a cartilage scoring technique, suitable for pliable cartilage in that age group, is described. No cases have been reported in an adult. We describe a simple and effective technique of managing this rare deformity in an adult, for the first time. The principle of the technique is the use an autologous cartilage graft.
