• We discuss the eighth reported case of a benign salivary gland tumor in the middle ear. The lesion was a smooth, lobulated mass and was found to be intimately associated with the tympanic portion of the facial nerve. Recommended treatment is biopsy without attempting removal. This concept of management is supported by a report of a similar case with a 15-year follow-up.
