[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Adenomatous neoplasia or glandular tumours in the ear are very rare to occur. We are reporting two patients who presented with polypoid mass in external auditory canal of whom one patient was diagnosed to have ceruminous adenoma of external auditory canal and the other adenomatous carcinoma of middle ear based on histopathology findings of biopsied specimen. Review of available literature shows that both ceruminous adenoma of external auditory canal and adenocarcinoma of middle are very rare to occur and are even difficult to diagnose histopathologically. We would like to emphasize the importance of considering even such rare pathologies while evaluating aural polyps.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We are reporting a case of 10-year-old female child with an asymptomatic left sided cystic neck mass who underwent surgical excision. She was diagnosed as having a cervical thymic cyst based on histopathologic findings. The review of available literature on thymic cyst has shown that cervical thymic cyst is a rare occurrence, but should always be thought of in the differential diagnosis of cystic masses in the neck especially presenting in children.
