Abstract:

Background: Carcinoid tumours are rare neuroendocrine tumours of the middle ear. Review of the literature has shown that since 1980 only 40 cases of primary carcinoid of the middle ear have been described.

Method:We report the case of a 56-year-old man with right-sided continuous tinnitus for 2 years. Tympanomastoid exploration was done and the tumour mass removed. Frozen section suggested the possibility of carcinoid tumour.
