Chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis (CNH) is an idiopathic inflammatory painful condition of the ear characterized by a tender nodule located on the helix or antihelix. Even if various causes have been ascribed, such as a microvascular injury due to acute exposure to cold or trauma, pressure, or rubbing, etiopathogenesis still remains unknown. We describe the unusual case of a young female with a peculiar sequential onset of bilateral CNH in the antihelix region, possibly ascribed to the direct use of mobile phone without earphones.

Abstract

Chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis (CNH) is an idiopathic inflammatory painful condition of the ear characterized by a tender nodule located on the helix or antihelix. Even if various causes have been ascribed, such as a microvascular injury due to acute exposure to cold or trauma, pressure, or rubbing, etiopathogenesis still remains unknown. We describe the unusual case of a young female with a peculiar sequential onset of bilateral CNH in the antihelix region, possibly ascribed to the direct use of mobile phone without earphones.
