Ceruminous adenoma is a rare neoplasm of the external auditory meatus (EAM) with benign clinical behavior. They demonstrate a dual cell population of basal myoepithelial-type cells and luminal ceruminous cells. Cerumen pigment, cytokeratin 7 (CK7) and p63 can help to distinguish this tumor from other neoplasms that occur in the region. Complete surgical excision results in an excellent long-term clinical outcome. We present a case of histologically confirmed ceruminous adenoma of the EAM in a surgically treated 38-year-old female. She presented with recurrent serosanguineous discharge along with flakes from the right ear along with hearing impairment. She is doing well in last 8 months follow-up.
