Objective: The aim of this study was to report a case of Generalized Eruptive Keratoacanthomas (GEKA) involving the auricles and external auditory canal and to review the relevant literature. Methods: A patient with bilateral auricles stenosis and External Auditory Canal (EAC) atresia associated with GEKA is described. We performed a systematic review of the literature to identify and compare similar cases. Results: This case report described a 54-year-old female patient with external auditory canal stenosis and auriclelesion associated with GEKA. A Computed Tomography scan (CT) of the temporal bone. Conclusion: Bilateral auricles stenosis and atresia of EAC associated with GEKA is a rare case. It provides a new perspective for the etiological diagnosis of acquired auricles lesion as well as stenosis and atresia of EAC in the future. The surgical strategy is necessary for the management of the acquired stenosis and atresia of the EAC that associated with GEKA. Further research is needed to increase the number of clinical cases to establish whether and when the surgery is necessary for this disease.
