Temporal bone hemangiomas are rare, difficult to diagnose and may cause devastating permanent sequelae. We report a case of 10-year-old female with middle ear and mastoid hemangioma who presented with facial palsy and conductive hearing loss. Due to presence of associated scalp swelling, hemangioma was suspected and confirmed by angiography. Treatment was performed by embolization leading to arrest of progression and partial reversal of hearing loss. On extensive review of literature, we conclude that this is the first case of temporal bone hemangioma to be diagnosed pre-operatively and to be treated with embolization techniques.
