Diffuse neurofibroma obstructing the external auditory meatus

, : Diffuse neurofibroma obstructing the external auditory meatus. Journal of Laryngology and Otology 111(2): 145-147

A case is presented of a 36-year-old male with narrowing of the external meatus due to a diffuse neurofibroma. This unusual variety of neurofibroma spreads superficially and has many ecstatic blood vessels. The size, vascularity, uncertain edges and a tendency to recur makes surgical removal difficult. The treatment options are discussed.

Background: Neuroinflammation has been implicated in various brain pathologies characterized by hypoxia and ischemia. Astroglia play an important role in the initiation and propagation of hypoxia/ischemia-induced inflammation by secreting inflamm...
