The case series is regarding effective management of carcinoma external auditory canal (EAC). Patients were assessed clinically and radiologically preoperatively, and an operative plan was decided. Patients were operated for carcinoma EAC, and lateral temporal bone resection along with ancillary procedures such as superficial parotidectomy and selective neck dissection were performed. With the help of frozen section, adjacent clinically suspicious tissue involvement was ruled out for malignancy. Hearing mechanism reconstruction was performed using autologous cartilage and instead of cul-de-sac closure of EAC, canal was kept open by doing wide conchomeatoplasty to aid in postoperative assessment and can avoid repeated imaging.
