Abstract

We report a case of bilateral anotia in a newborn of diabetic mother with congenital hypothyroidism. Infants of diabetic mother have increased incidence of external ear anomaly due to defective embryogenesis. Bilateral anotia may be associated with congenital hypothyroidism as both thyroid gland and external ear develop from first and second branchial arches.
