Abstract

We describe a case of nodular fasciitis of the external auditory canal and review the literature. This rare entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of rapidly growing, hemorrhagic neoplastic lesions of the ear. Experienced otopathologists are needed for proper preoperative evaluation. The excision of the tumor together with the site of origin lowers the probability of recurrence.
