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