A Rare Case of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of External Auditory Canal

Author(s): MK Rajasekar, Nithya Balasubramanian* and Sarenya


With an annual incidence of 1 to 6 occurrences per million persons, squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone and external auditory canal is a rather rare tumour. This anatomically complex region yields three-dimensional specimens that are challenging to analyse macroscopically and microscopically. We present a case of squamous cell carcinoma of the external auditory canal in a 50-year-old woman who had a 10-day history of right ear ache with serosanguinous discharge that had been on and off for three months. Due to its significant expansion into the middle ear, her tumour was deemed unrespectable at the time of diagnosis, and she received palliative chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
