Caption: Perichondritis. Close-up of the red, inflamed ear of an elderly man with perichondritis. Perichon- dritis is caused by bacterial infection of a type of fibrous connective tissue called perichondrium, which covers cartilage (tough structural connect- ive tissue). The condition often affects the outer ear, and is triggered by chronic bacterial infec- tion. The usual treatment is a course of antibiotics.
