Abstract

We report a case of internal auditory canal osteoma and discuss this entity's etiology, natural history, and treatment options. The internal auditory canal osteoma is a rare entity with only a few reports published in the medical literature. Its diagnosis is based on two complementary imaging modalities: thin-slice computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. No consensus exists regarding the treatment of this entity, and treatment should be tailored to each patient depending on that patient's initial complaints, as well as his or her medical findings.
