Calcification or ossification of the auricular cartilage, also known as “petrified ears”, was first described by Bochdalek in 1866. In our article, a seventy-two years-old male was evaluated for stiffed left ear over few years. No obvious cause was demonstrated on laboratory tests. Calcification or ossification of the left external auricular cartilage was demonstrated on non-contrast temporal bone Computed Tomography (CT) scan and therefore a rare case of idiopathic petrified left ear was di...
