PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 1
Herman J. Mabrie III, MD, Houston
A 78-year-old man complained of drainage from his left ear and intermittent pain for four years. He did not complain of hearing loss or dizziness. On physical examination, the face was symmetrical, and the right ear was normal. The left ear showed excoriation of the external canal, with the canal filled with a papillomatous mass. The tympanic membrane could not be seen. The result of Weber's test was laterally to the left side, with the use of a 512 tuning fork. The examination of the neck yielded no palpable masses. A biopsy specimen of the mass in the external canal was taken (Fig 1 and 2).What is your diagnosis?
