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.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
