We report a case of low grade adenocarcinoma of the inner ear mimicking the glomus jugulare tumour. The lesion occurred in a 72-year-old male with a longstanding history of right-sided hearing loss and a few week history of progressive facial nerve palsy and right aural pain. Histologically, the tumour showed pseudoglandular spaces with papillary infoldings with lumena filled with colloid-like material. The lesion was removed using a sub-occipital approach following endoarterial embolisation.
