Chondritis of the ear is a late sequela of deep partial thickness burns of the face. It is the purpose of this article to describe two patients who came to the emergency department 21 days and 35 days after sustaining deep partial thickness burns of the face from explosions. The patients were hospitalized for incision and drainage of the infected wound that included excision of the infected cartilage complemented by systemic antibiotic therapy.
