  • [Title] [Middle ear adenoma].
  • [Transliterated title] Adenoma del oído medio.
  • Middle ear neoplasms are rare lesions and difficult to diagnose due to limited information about their biology and the lack of standard criteria for their analysis.
  • Herein, a middle ear neoplasm is described that became apparent because of its appearance in the external ear duct as it protruded from the middle ear through the eardrum.
  • Following resection, the specimen was determined to be a benign epithelial tumor.
  • Absence of adequate clinical information complicated the diagnosis; therefore,histochemistry and immunohistochemistry analyses were necessary to reach the final diagnosis of middle ear adenoma.

2. Saliba I, Evrard AS: Middle ear glandular neoplasms: adenoma, carcinoma or adenoma with neuroendocrine differentiation: a case series. Cases J; 2009;2:6508

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Middle ear glandular neoplasms: adenoma, carcinoma or adenoma with neuroendocrine differentiation: a case series.
  • INTRODUCTION: Middle ear glandular neoplasms are infrequent causes of a middle ear mass.
  • Herein, we present a new case of a middle ear glandular neoplasm.
  • Our objective is to review all cases described in the literature in order to identify the clinical features, the gross pathology, the histopathology, the immunohistochemistry, to discuss the differential diagnosis, the treatment, the rate of recurrence, the follow-up, the incidence of metastasis, the prognosis and to present a new classification of middle ear glandular neoplasm.
  • RESULTS: Ninety-four patients with a middle ear adenoma are included in this report.
  • We uncovered 75 patients with a carcinoid tumor and 19 patients with a middle ear adenoma diagnosis; the most common presenting symptom was a conductive hearing loss.
  • Middle ear adenomas are lesions that are typically white, gray or reddish brown.
  • The tumor's cells are immunohistochemically positive for a variety of keratin antibodies and most of them are also positive for neuroendocrine markers.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study and the review of the literature showed adenomas and carcinoid tumors of the middle ear to be essentially indistinguishable benign tumors with metastatic potential.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [External auditory canal osteoma].
  • INTRODUCTION: Osteomas are a slow growing benign neoplasm of unknown etiology very rarely involving the temporal bone.
  • They develop in the external auditory canal on squamous sections, in the mastoid, middle and inner ear.
  • The symptoms of intracanalicular osteomas are the result of auditory canal obstruction.
  • Diagnosis is made based on case history, clinical examination, audiological processing and radiography (temporal bone CT scan), and confirmed by histopathological examination of the bone.
  • In terms of differential diagnosis, they must be distinguished from exostoses, bone tissue proliferation and osteoid osteomata.
  • The progress of the disease is prolonged, as they are slow growing, asymptomatic and benign tumours.
  • CASE OUTLINE: The report presents the case of a 70-year old patient with the osteoma of the right external auditory canal.
  • In our patient, the osteoma arose in the auditory canal, the most frequent localization; it was unilateral, solitary, multilobular and compact.
  • The clinical diagnosis was confirmed by CT scan of the temporal bone.
  • CONCLUSION: Due to their slow growth, the rate of auditory canal osteomas develop asymptomatically for a long time without the characteristic clinical features.
  • The method of choice in diagnosis is temporal bone CT scan.

  • [Title] [Middle ear adenoma/middle ear carcinoid--an unproblematic tumor?].
  • [Transliterated title] Mittelohradenom/Mittelohrkarzinoid--ein unproblematischer Tumor?
  • OBJECTIVES: Adenomas/carcinoid tumors of the middle ear are very rare tumors of young to middle aged patients.
  • The terms adenoma and carcinoid tumor of the middle ear can be used as synonyms, with the WHO favouring the term middle ear adenoma (MEA).
  • They are classified as benign tumors with only very few reported cases of regional metastasis after years of disease.
  • METHODS AND PATIENTS: This study describes the clinical course and the diagnostic challenges in four cases of this rare tumor entity.
  • In two cases a tumor recurrence was documented with one case recurring six times.
  • The histological differential diagnosis can also be problematic; in one case with a highly atypical morphology it was impossible to arrive at a definite diagnosis during the analysis of a frozen section.
  • CONCLUSION: Adenomas of the middle ear can have a much more complicated clinical course than is suggested by the recent literature.
  • The presented cases in this study and the analysis of previously published cases shows that the typical progression described by the current WHO-classification with unproblematic surgical management of the tumor and an uncomplicated further clinical course does not always correspond to reality.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary carcinoid tumor of the middle ear: a potentially metastasizing tumor.
  • The concept of a carcinoid tumor in the gastrointestinal tract and lung is well established; less often, patients develop carcinoid tumors in the head and neck region.
  • One particularly uncommon site of origin of carcinoid tumors in the head and neck area is the middle ear.
  • Middle ear carcinoids have previously been approached as benign entities, lacking any capacity for metastasizing.
  • A critical review of the literature, however, disclosed a small number of cases in which middle ear carcinoid tumors have given rise to regional (cervical node) metastases.
  • This in turn suggests that, as is the case with pulmonary carcinoid tumors, middle ear carcinoids should be thought of as low-grade malignancies which, while relatively slow-growing, nevertheless possess a limited capacity for spreading to regional lymph nodes.
  • To date, distant metastases have not been associated with middle ear carcinoid tumors.

  • Syryngocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP) is an uncommon cutaneous adnexal neoplasm of apocrine gland origin.
  • Until now, fewer than 200 cases have been reported in international literature, of which 12 cases involved the external ear.
  • No cases of SCAP involving the middle ear have been reported.
  • We describe a case of SCAP of external and middle ear, presenting with otomastoiditis and cerebral abscess; this aggressive behavior, never reported for a benign adenoma of the external or middle ear, could lead to a differential diagnosis with cholesteatoma or malignancies.

  • [Title] Middle ear and mastoid glomus tumors (glomus tympanicum): an algorithm for the surgical management.
  • OBJECTIVE: Glomus tumors are slow-growing benign lesions and represent the most common primary neoplasms of the middle ear.
  • METHODS: Between December 1988 and July 2008, 68 patients with histologically confirmed glomus tympanicum tumor underwent surgical treatment.
  • Nineteen patients with larger Class B tumors underwent a subtotal petrosectomy with blind sac closure of the external auditory canal and middle ear obliteration.
  • Gross total tumor removal was achieved in all 68 cases.
  • CONCLUSION: Surgical excision of glomus tympanicum tumors is a safe procedure, allowing total tumor removal with minimal morbidity, a low recurrence rate, and a low complication rate.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Identification of human papilloma viruses (HPV) in inflammatory states and ear neoplasms].
  • There's a hypothesis, that it plays a significant role in middle ear chronic inflammations and neoplasm's.
  • The examination was carried on a group of 53 patients, 39 of which was suffering from granulation tissue chronic otitis media, 7-cholesteatomatous otitis media, 6--middle ear malignant neoplasm, and 1 middle and/or external ear benign neoplasm.
  • The material was postoperative tissue, like polyps, inflammatory granulation tissue, cholesteatoma masses and malignant neoplasm's tissue.
  • In every case of middle ear malignant neoplasm a presence of high-risk DNA Papilloma types 16 or 18 was confirmed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results has been compared with other authors examinations and it is claimed that they confirm the observation, that Human Papilloma Viruses may be a factor, that might play an important role in pathology of chronic otitis media and ear neoplasm's.
  • It is concluded, that differences in percentages of HPV presence in chronic inflammations (70%) and ear neoplasm's may be explained by viral co-infection during bacterial c. o. m.

  • [Title] Primary pleomorphic adenoma of the external ear canal. Report of a case and literature review.
  • INTRODUCTION: Primary neoplasms of the external ear canal are rare, and 5% of these tumors are of glandular origin.
  • Ceruminal glands are modified sweat glands of the skin of the external auditory meatus that may give rise to (a) benign tumors such as ceruminous adenoma, pleomorphic adenoma, and syringocystadenoma papilliferum, and (b) malignant tumors such as ceruminous adenocarcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
  • An alternative theory holds that pleomorphic adenomas may well arise from ectopic salivary tissue present in the external ear canal.
  • These tumors are very rare and usually have a benign course.
  • In this report, we describe an unusual case of pleomorphic adenoma of the external auditory canal associated with chronic infection of the middle ear.
  • Subsequent biopsy and histologic examination revealed pleomorphic adenoma of the external ear canal, possibly with malignant elements.
  • The patient underwent modified radical mastoidectomy and complete resection of the tumor and the entire skin of the external auditory canal.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pleomorphic adenoma is an extremely rare tumor arising from the ceruminal glands of the external ear canal.
  • Nonspecific presentation and difficult histologic diagnosis characterize this benign neoplasm.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Inverted papilloma (IP) is a rare nasosinusal benign tumour, with epithelium surface inversion to inside the stroma.
  • Extension to intracranial temporal fossa and middle ear has been reported in few cases in the literature.
  • This involvement may be derived from either direct extension from sinonasal cavity via the Eustachian tube or primary middle ear involvement secondary to metaplastic changes of the middle ear mucosa.
  • Here, we report a case of inverted papilloma in a male patient, with multiple recurrences, middle ear and intracranial involvement into the temporal fossa with posterior development of malignancy.
  • As a conclusion, inverted papilloma is a benign tumour with an aggressive course, tendency to recurrence and progression to malignancy.

  • Middle ear adenoma is a benign tumor of the middle ear that can have exocrine (mucinous) and/or neuroendocrine differentiation.
  • Early authors described a separate tumor with predominantly neuroendocrine differentiation as a middle ear carcinoid tumor, but these are now known to be the same tumor.
  • We review the literature of this tumor, including the clinical presentation, gross pathology, histopathology, immunohistochemistry, differential diagnosis, and prognosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: To appraise surgical considerations in the management of tumours of the nose and paranasal sinuses in a developing nation from the experiences of an Ear, Nose, and Throat Department of a Nigerian Teaching Hospital.
  • The surgical operations carried out were lateral rhinotomy in 37(57.8%), intranasal clearance and intranasal antrostomy in 16(25%), total maxillectomy in seven(11%), and anterior craniofacial resection in two (3.1%) patients.The histological examination showed that 43 (78.2%) cases were benign, while 12 (21.8%) cases were malignant.
  • CONCLUSION: Majority of the cases were characterised by late presentation, requiring surgical approaches such as lateral rhinotomy, total maxillectomy or craniofacial resection depending on the extent of the tumour.
  • Provision of free medical care and modern facilities for early diagnosis, treatment, and health education are needed to reverse the trend.

  • Based on our study and long-term follow-up, radiosurgery can produce high rates of tumour growth control and hearing preservation for intracanalicular acoustic neuromas, and is an alternative to surgical resection given its low level of invasiveness.
  • When determining treatment for intracanalicular acoustic neuromas, the condition's benign natural course and the likelihood of hearing preservation must be taken into account.

Genetic Alliance. consumer health - Syringocystadenoma papilliferum.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: To describe 6 patients with syringocystadenoma papilliferum of the eyelid and to review the literature regarding this rare eyelid tumor.
  • METHODS: Clinicopathologic series of 6 cases, diagnosed at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary from 1990 to 2006.
  • Most cases had a preoperative diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma or cyst.
  • None of the lesions was associated with a malignant neoplasm.
  • Although syringocystadenoma papilliferum of the eyelid can be associated with other benign lesions, no malignant transformation or association with malignant neoplasms has been reported.
  • The evidence suggests that this tumor should be managed with conservative complete excision.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Vestibular schwannomas are benign tumors that usually originate from the balance portion of cranial nerve VIII.
  • Although the ultimate goal in treatment of vestibular schwannomas is preservation of life, the best option for each patient depends on symptoms, tumor size, tumor location, and the patient's general health and age.
  • Surgical exposure of the cerebellopontine angle for removal of vestibular schwannomas can be performed safely via a translabyrinthine, retrosigmoid, and middle fossa approach.
  • The goal of surgery is complete eradication of tumor with preservation of hearing and facial nerve function when possible.
