    A 68-year old woman suffered from a subtotal amputation of the left ear due to a dog bite. The recovered ear was implanted and reconstructed using a radial forearm flap. In our opinion, the forearm is an excellent choice for implantation of recovered ear cartilage as preparation for one-stage reconstruction.
