Abstract

We report a case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) originating from the eustachian tube and middle ear. A 31-year-old male who presented with otorrhoea and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the right ear was admitted to hospital due to cerebral infarction and deep vein thrombosis. After recovery, biopsies from a granulomatous mass found in the middle ear during operation for chronic otitis media revealed intermediate-grade MEC and a nasopharyngeal mass identified after surgery also revealed the same result. He received combined radiation therapy and chemotherapy and no residual or recurrent tumour was detected after two years of follow-up.
