In the surgical management of auricular keloids, there is a high surgery recurrence rate and postoperative electron beam irradiation (15Gy/3fractions/3days), which is 27.3%. Moreover, postoperative auricular deformities are a problem. Keloid core excision will be the most suitable surgical method for treating auricular keloid, because the strain of the wound is free after operation.. There were little deformities of a postoperative auricle, and the recurrence rate was low.
