External auditory canal leiomyoma: A pediatric case report


Journal Article

EAC leiomyomas remain rare. Three cases have been previously published-all angioleiomyomas occurring in middle-aged men. We report a leiomyoma of the EAC arising in a pediatric patient, and this is the first report of its kind. The differential for these tumors now includes congenital and acquired tumors of the cartilaginous EAC. Complete excision is the treatment of choice with no recurrences reported in the literature to date. © 2007 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
