Ectopic extra-cranial meningioma presenting as an aural polyp

, : Ectopic extra-cranial meningioma presenting as an aural polyp. European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology 260(6): 322-324

Ectopic meningiomas located within the external auditory canal without any intracranial connection are an extremely rare finding. A report is made of a 38-year-old woman presenting with a conductive hearing loss due to an aural polyp, which was subsequently diagnosed as a meningioma. Computer-aided tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed the tumour to be entirely extracranial. Complete tumour excision was achieved using a modified radical mastoidectomy approach.
