Abstract

Glomus tumor is slow-growing benign tumor in the middle ear. We reported a patient with glomus tympanicum tumor. She complained of tinnitus in the right ear. Otoscopy examination revealed a reddish and pulsative mass in the right tympanic cavity. A glomus tumor was suspected. CT and MRI showed a tumorous shadow limited in the tympanic cavity without expanding into tympanomastoid compartment The mass was enhanced partially in MRI imaging. The tumor was removed by transcanal tympanotomy without embolization. Histological and immune-histochemical study confirmed the diagnosis. Symptoms disappeared in a few days following the operation.
