An interesting case record of a patient with glomus tympanicum

2. Hard of hearing right ear - 5 years

Past history:

These CT scan images show contrast enhancing soft tissrue lesion occupying the whole of the middle ear cavity. The same mass could be seen extending on to fill the attic, aditus and mastoid cavity. Tegmen plate appears to be eroded.
