Aim: To fabricate a silicone auricular prosthesis for unilateral auricular defect exactly simulating the healthy contralateral ear. Background: Congenital or acquired loss of any facial structure has a very high negative impact on an individual's life. The prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient with unilateral auricular defect is a challenging task to replicate the complex anatomy of the auricle simulating contralateral ear. Case description: This case report describes an innovative, accurate and simple technique which has not been mentioned in literature till date for fabrication of wax pattern of the auricular prosthesis without the use of any expensive or sophisticated equipment Conclusion: This case report describes a technique that can be used in routine clinical practice to replicate the anatomy of auricle without using any expensive equipment.
