Extramammary Paget’s disease
affecting the external auditory canal: a case report
Extramammary Paget’s disease is a
rare histological type of intraepithelial adenocarcinoma that mainly affects
apocrine sweat gland-rich areas. Predilection sites include the anogenital
region and, less commonly, the axillae. These tumors rarely occur in
non-apocrine regions. The aim of this case report is to describe a case of
extramammary Paget’s disease in the external auditory canal with extensive
temporal bone involvement and skull base invasion.
A 40-year-old Caucasian man
presented with a progressively growing, vegetating lesion localized in his
right-hand external auditory canal. He had peripheral facial nerve paralysis
and complete ipsilateral hearing loss. An incisional biopsy suggested
extramammary Paget’s disease, and the immunohistochemical analysis confirmed
the diagnosis. The tumor was considered inoperable because of the extensive
skull base involvement, and he was referred for palliative radiotherapy.
We report here the third case of
extramammary Paget’s disease affecting the external auditory canal to be
described in the literature. In all the three cases, the prognosis was
unfavorable despite treatment.
