Hemangiomas affectioning the external ear canal or the tympanic membrane have rarely been described. Only a very few cases are reported in world literature conarn these vascular tumors involving the middle ear space. The Authors report a rare case of a right endotympanic hemangioma associated with ossicular dysmorphism, resulting in conductive unilateral hearing loss, in a 9 year-old girl with cutaneous hemangiomas of the face. The Authors review Literature and discuss the possible pathogenetic implications of the intraoperatory findings.
