Abstract

Osteoma of the Internal Auditory Canal: Presentation of a Case with Literature Review

Osteoma of the internal auditory canal is a rare lesion, which is usually asymptomatic. Its growth is very slow and the diagnosis is usually made incidentally on computed tomography (CT) scans of temporal bones. However, there is not a single golden standard for treatment managements. Herein, a case which was diagnosed incidentally on CT scans performed due to chronic otitis media is presented, wherein the relationship between tumor localization and symptoms was investigated.
