Stahl's ear is a rare auricle anomaly characterised by extension of the third crus from the antihelix across the scaphoid fossa. Diverse methods for reconstructing Stahl's ear have been reported. Since 1999, we have reconstructed Stahl's ear using the ‘crucial incision method’ described by Torikai et al.
1in 1981 (Fig. 1). In this report, we describe the usefulness of the method by presenting a case in which excellent results were obtained.
