Seborrheic Keratosis is a common condition in the elderly population but its occurrence over the Pinna is very rare. We describe here the case of a 52 year old female with a blackish colored growth over the pinna which was excised for histopathological examination and diagnosed thereafter as Seborrheic keratosis. Many varieties of Seborrheic keratosis have been described in the literature and in our case it turned out to be the acanthotic type.
