Abstract

Verrucous carcinoma is a highly differentiated variant of squamous cell carcinoma. In the literature, 11 cases of primary verrucous carcinoma of the temporal bone have been reported. We present a 48-year-old woman who had undergone radical mastoidectomy because of chronic otitis media 20 years ago; consequently, verrucous carcinoma occurred in the mastoid cavity. We discuss verrucous carcinoma of the temporal bone with the review of literature. (C) 2008 Published by Elsevier Inc.
