Abstract

Verrucous carcinoma is an unusually well-differentiated variant of squamous cell carcinoma, characterized by local invasion and cytologically benign appearance. We report a case of 52-year-old male who presented with postauricular growth and cholesteatoma in the right ear. High-resolution computed tomography temporal bone showed an enhancing soft tissue mass lesion extending into the mastoid, external auditory canal, and middle ear. Growth was histopathologically confirmed to be verrucous carcinoma extending from the cholesteatoma in mastoid cavity. Review of literature confirms the rarity of cases of cholesteatoma which could progress and present as verrucous carcinoma in the postauricular region.
