Abstract

Myxoma is a benign connective tissue tumor that arises mostly from the heart. Temporal bone myxomas are extremely rare and these patients should be evaluated for the Carney complex association. Herein, our aim was to present a middle ear myxoma case operated with an initial diagnosis of chronic otitis me-dia (COM) and to underline the fact that myxomas should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of aural polyps.
