Case Study
The article describes the case of a 42 year old man presented with a 1-year history of on-and-off left-sided bloody otorrhea diagnosed with acute otitis externa. An otoscopy indicated the presence of a nodular mass that engaged the anterior aspect of the left cartilaginous portion of the external auditory canal (EAC) which was removed by a wide excision. It notes that basal cell carcinomas of the EAC are locally aggressive but not associated with regional lymph node metastasis.
