Abstract

Primary middle ear neoplasms are rare, and commonly cause conductive hearing loss. When aural masses result in sensorineural hearing loss, malignant etiologies are often suspected. Fibroepithelial polyps are benign lesions commonly found in the skin and genitourinary tract and are not commonly identified as primary lesions of the middle ear. Here, we present a case of a benign fibroepithelial polyp of the middle ear causing sensorineural hearing loss and describe its surgical management. Imaging and histologic characteristics are reviewed.
