Background: Coronary artery disease (CAD) that can cause high mortality may be diagnosed by cutaneous markers such as earlobe crease. Aside from the earlobe crease, other cutaneous markers are suspected of helping detect the existence of CAD. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the prevalence of cutaneous markers in patients with CAD submitted to coronary angiography.
Case Report: A study was conducted involving 115 patients who had undergone coronary angiography to confirm the existence of CAD. These patients were examined for the presence of seven cutaneous markers. As a result, a preauricular crease was found in 77% of cases, 67.8% corneal arcus, 47% achocordon, and 45.2% cases of earlobe crease.
Conclusion: Preauricular crease was numerous in CAD cases and may be investigated in relationship with CAD.
