ABSTRACT
Mature teratoma is a benign germ cell tumor rarely located in the temporal bone. We are reporting a case of a mature teratoma of the temporal bone in a healthy borne 3.5-month-old baby girl with a 2-day suggestive history of otitis media and polypoidal mass expulsing from the external auditory canal of the left ear. A definitive diagnosis is made after complete excision and histological examination of the tissue. Total surgical excision of the tumor is the treatment of choice.

fig1: The external auditory meatus of the left ear shows that the external auditory meatus of the left ear was filled out by a nonhemorrhagic polypoidal mass.

Mentions: Examination revealed a vitally stabile, well-fed baby girl. The external auditory meatus of the left ear was filled out by a nonhemorrhagic polypoidal mass, which was firm in consistency and nontender on palpation (Figure 1). There was also minimal discharge. The tympanic membrane was not visible. Systemic evaluation including cardiovascular and neurological examinations showed no abnormalities.
