Neurofibroma of external auditory canal

An unusual differential diagnosis of aural polyp

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Neurofibromas are circumscribed but nonencapsulated neoplasms of the nervous system. They are relatively common in the nervous system, but only a few have been reported in ear. Here, we report a case of a 38-year-old female who presented with the complaints of right ear pain and right ear obstruction. Examination revealed a mass in external auditory canal, which was excised by postauricular approach. Surgery resulted in an excellent functional outcome.
