Pseudocyst of the auricle is a rare, asymptomatic intracartilaginous swelling of the auricle resulting form accumulation of yellow viscous fluid with unknown cause. Various methods of treatment such as aspiration, corticosteroid injections and surgical intervention have been advocated for this condition. We report two cases treated successfully with a combination of aspiration, pressure dressing and oral corticosteroid therapy.
