Sewmaik, A; Kamarashev, J; Peters, N S; van Rijswijk, J B (2010). A non-traumatic, blue-purple auricle: case report. Journal of Laryngology and Otology, 124(7):804-806.

Abstract

Objective: We report a typical case of earlobe lymphocytoma.
Method: A case report and literature review are presented.
Results: A 10-year-old girl presented with a blue-coloured earlobe. A diagnosis of Lyme disease was confirmed
by serological tests. Lyme borreliosis is the most common tick-borne disease in the northern hemisphere. It is
caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. The patient was successfully treated with antibiotics.
Conclusion: The diagnostic process and ENT symptomatology of Lyme disease and borrelial lymphocytoma
are summarised and discussed.
