Resident's Page Abstract PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 1 Hector J. Seda, MD, Philadelphia An 83-year-old man had a slowly progressive hearing loss. There were no other associated otologic or vestibular symptoms. The physical examination disclosed complete obstruction of the external auditory canal by a smooth epithelial-covered mass. A speculum could not be introduced into the canal to determine the medial extent of the mass. Mastoid tomograms were negative for bony erosion in the region of the external canal or middle ear. The lesion was removed through an endaural approach and was found to involve only the cartilaginous portion of the external canal. Histological studies were performed (Fig 1 and 2).What is your diagnosis? PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 2 Philip F. Anthony, MD, Houston A 56-year-old white man had fallen and received a blow to his face. He was believed to have a facial fracture, on the basis of a cloudy right maxillary antrum (Fig References 1. Hirsch P, Helwig EB: Chondroid syringoma: Mixed tumor of the skin, salivary gland type .
