Dear anonymous246, thank you for your question.  Creases near the earlobes usually are only significant in young infants/children who are suspected of having disorders such as Down's Syndrome which are associated with congenital cardiac defects.  It's very unlikely that your husband has such a problem.  However, you should consult his physician if you have further questions.
Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only.  Specific diagnoses and therapies can only be provided by your physicians.  Please feel free to write back with additional questions.  If you would like to
