Abstract

Meningiomas are the second most common primary tumors of the Central Nervous System. Most cases occur in intracranial sites; but in very rare cases some do occur in extracranial regions. Ectopic meningiomas have no communication with intracranial meninges and misdiagnosis of this pathology may be encountered due to its anatomical complexity. The report below is one of the few uncommon documented cases of Primary Ectopic Atypical Meningioma of the middle ear which should increase the awareness of otolaryngologists over difficulties arising to diagnose this rare phenomenon.
