Objectives: The aim of this study was to document the occurrence of a cavernous haemangioma of the external auditory canal, and to review the literature on this pathology. Methods: We report the clinical presentation, imaging studies, surgical procedure and histological findings for a cavernous haemangioma of the external auditory canal. Results: This patient represents the fourth reported case of cavernous haemangioma affecting only the external auditory canal. A cavernous haemangioma of the external auditory canal, not affecting the tympanic membrane, was surgically removed, without post-operative complications. Conclusions: Cavernous haemangioma of the external auditory canal is a rare otological pathology. Computed tomography imaging is important in order to precisely define and localise the site and size of the lesion. Histological examination is necessary for the correct diagnosis of the pathology. © 2008 JLO (1984) Limited.
