Salivary Gland Choristoma of the Middle Ear: A Case Report
Keyvan Aghazadeh, Ebrahim Karimi, Amirsina Sharifi

Abstract


Salivary gland choristoma of the middle ear is a rare mass characterized by the presence of normal salivary gland tissue in the middle ear cavity. This mass is usually accompanied with ossicular chain and facial nerve anomalies. Total surgical excision is a treatment of choice if the facial nerve is intact. Here, we describe a case of salivary gland choristoma of the middle ear, and discuss our experience. Our patient was a 41-year-old man presented with 6 months history of hearing loss. Intra-operatively, we detected   a   soft,   pinkish   mass   with   evidence   of   ossicular   chain malformation. Patient showed hearing development in following up after three months.
