Abstract

Haemangiomas are relatively common in the head and neck region, but cases in the temporal bone are rare. Temporal bone haemangiomas tend to arise from the geniculate ganglion, internal auditory canal and the beginning of chorda tympani due their vascularity. Haemangiomas originating from the external canal and middle ear are exceedingly rare. Due to the very limited data, the true natural history of this peculiar entity remains unknown. Here we report a case of capillary haemangioma involving the external and middle ear and discuss the diagnosis, investigative work up and treatment of the disease.
