Abstract

Osteomas of the middle ear are exceedingly rare benign neoplasms. To date, only 21 cases have been reported in the literature. They arise from the promontory, the pyramidal process and the ossicles, and they are usually asymptomatic or cause some conductive hearing loss. We report here the CT & pathologic findings in a 38-year-old woman with a benign osteoma of the middle ear along with chronic otitis media.
