Hemangiomas of the external auditory canal are rare with only 16 cases reported in the literature. We report the case of a 62-year-old woman who presented with bleeding from the external auditory canal. Physical examination and imaging were consistent with a hemangioma. Initial diagnostic evaluation failed to reveal the full extent of the lesion resulting in recurrence after primary local excision. After recurrence, the hemangioma was managed successfully with embolization and a more extensive resection. In addition, we review the relevant literature with respect to epidemiology, presentation, evaluation, pathology, and management options for hemangiomas arising in the external auditory canal.
