Osteomas are benign tumors of mesenchymal origin. Osteomas of head and neck origin have been described, but mastoid osteoma form a rare entity with only 150 cases being reported in the literature. Osteomas of the mastoid bone are usually asymptomatic but may cause cosmetic deformity. We reported a rare case of mastoid osteoma in a young female with a hard swelling in the postauricular region, which was clinically asymptomatic, but causing cosmetic deformity and gave unseemly appearance. On imaging studies, radiographs of skull showed a dense radiopacity in the mastoid region and noncontrast computed tomography of the temporal bone showed a densely calcified lesion of bone attenuation in left mastoid.
