***** Hematoma

Description : The extravasated blood provides a rich culture medium, and, if bacteria gain entry, a severe infection may develop. The loose subcutaneous tissue, which is present between the skin overlying the perichondrium on the medial aspect of the auricle, provides considerable mobility. Consequently a hematoma will usually not form on the medial surface of the auricle unless the auricular cartilage has been actually fractured.
