The amuse-bouche today was auricular cartilage calcification in adrenal insufficiency taken from the NEJM images in medicine series.

Auricular cartilage calcification and even true ossification of the auricular cartilages have been described in association with:
–mechanical tissue injury
–exposure to cold
–inflammatory conditions
–endocrinopathies including adrenal isufficiency
