The paper reports the case of a nodule in the external auditory meatus diagnosed as a myoepitheliomatous-type hydroadenoma. Three histological forms of benign ceruminous gland tumours are recognised: the myoepitheliomatous, cribriform and mixed salivary type. Currently, the term hydroadenoma of the external ear is preferred.
