Case 1 was first seen for a neck tumor (squamous cell carcinoma), but the primary site later proved to be the auricle. Total removal of the auricle with radical neck dissection was performed. In case 2?leukomelanoderma of the face was associated with a growth on the auricle first diagnosed as cutaneous horn. This recurred after repeated cryosurgical treatments for about a month. Biopsy revealed squamous cell carcinoma. Partial auricular resection was performed. There have been no signs of recurrencein either cases.
