    Abstract

    Aim: To report a rare case of hemangioma involving external and middle ear. Background: Vascular anomalies are common in head and neck but rarely reported in the ear. Hemangiomas are tumors growing with age. They can cause significant morbidity in the enclosed spaces of the ear. Case report: A 6-year-old boy presented with itching and pain in the right ear on evaluation had a polyp in the external auditory canal. He underwent excision biopsy of the lesion which was reported as hemangioma involving external and middle ear. Conclusion: Otological hemangioma is not much studied. We here report a case of hemangioma involving both external and middle ear, which is sixth such case in the literature. Clinical significance: Knowing the various presentations will help in early diagnosis and appropriate management of these lesions
