TUMORS OF THE EXTERNAL AUDITORY CANAL: WITH A REPORT OF ELEVEN CASES

TUMORS OF THE EXTERNAL AUDITORY CANAL: WITH A REPORT OF ELEVEN CASES Abstract Tumors of the external auditory canal are so rarely encountered in clinical practice that they are bound to elicit unusual interest. Experience with a number of cases of this type of lesion has prompted me to make a study of the cases which have been observed at City Hospital and at Lakeside Hospital.1 This has been augmented by a review of most of the recent literature on the subject.

Abstract

Abstract Tumors of the external auditory canal are so rarely encountered in clinical practice that they are bound to elicit unusual interest. Experience with a number of cases of this type of lesion has prompted me to make a study of the cases which have been observed at City Hospital and at Lakeside Hospital.1 This has been augmented by a review of most of the recent literature on the subject. MALIGNANT TUMORS Squamous carcinoma is the most common malignant tumor of the external auditory canal, and the records reviewed contain 3 cases of this type of lesion, which I am presenting here:Case 1.—A white woman, a widow, aged 58 years, presented herself at City Hospital on April 11, 1931 for treatment of a discharging ear. She said that there had been drainage from this ear since she was 4 years old. She had had pain in the ear and the References 1.
