Fibromyxoma of the middle ear (a case report). We report an extremely rare case of fibromyxoma of the middle ear which was first suspected to be a cholesteatoma. Surgery was performed through a postauricular incision and pathologic study of the tumor gave us the final diagnosis. Fibromyxoma is an uncommon benign tumour of the head and neck region which usually arises in the jaw (1). Its local aggressivity and gelatinous consistency explain the difficulties to remove it radically and its frequent recurrences after treatment (2). Surgical resection with a wide excision seems to be the treatment of choice. Some authors advocate the use of Argon or CO2 laser to achieve the treatment. A review of the poor literature about this subject is discussed in this article.
