Abstract

The differential diagnosis of middle ear masses encompasses a wide variety of pathologic conditions. In this report, we describe the case of a 6-year-old girl who presented with facial nerve weakness and was found to have a middle ear mass. The mass was excised, and final pathology revealed hemangioendothelioma. This report describes the youngest patient with this diagnosis presenting as a middle ear mass in the Western literature. This article provides this patient's presentation, imaging and histopathologic findings, and clinical course and reviews the current literature on this unique pathologic diagnosis.
