Rights and Permissions

We present a case of an adult male who presented with herniation of soft tissues of temporomandibular joint into the external auditory canal (EAC) through a persistent foramen tympanicum. The patient was referred for computed tomography (CT) for suspicious mass in the left EAC. Multidetector CT helped in correctly characterizing the lesion with retraction of the soft tissue mass in open mouth biopsy and thereby avoiding unnecessary biopsy.
