Abstract

Angioleiomyoma is a benign tumor which arises from vascular smooth muscle. It originates primarily in the upper and lower extremities, but several isolated cases have been described. Although angioleiomyoma has a benign nature, there is a potential risk of malignant change and recurrence in case of incomplete resection. We acknowledge that venous type angioleiomyoma on the posterior surface of auricle has not been reported in the Korean literature. We report a rare case of 49-year-old male who had angioleiomyoma originating from the auricle along with a literature review.
