Transitional papilloma of the middle ear

  • H. S. Kaddour (a1) and C. J Woodhead (a1)


We present a rare case of a transitional papilloma of the middle ear, occurring several years after excision of a similar lesion from the nose. There was no continuity between the two lesions suggesting that these tumours can be multicentric in origin.
