Surgical management of ear fibroma

Harmanpreet Singh Sodhi, Jasmeet Singh Khosa and Umeshwori Devi
Otitis externa is a chronic or acute inflammatory disorder of the external ear canal. External ear canal tumours are not uncommon in dogs and cats. Obstruction causes maceration, which might result in otitis externa. This case report describes diagnosis and successful surgical management of ear fibroma in a dog. A 3-year-old male Labrador retriever weighing 30kg was presented with a history of growth over right auditory opening from one year. Discharge was coming out of right ear and foul smell was present. There was no history of anorexia and animal was drinking water normally. No history of head shaking was present. Heart rate, respiration rate and body temperature of the dog were determined as 81/min, 22/min and 101.8◦F in the clinical examination, respectively. Capillary filling time was calculated as less than 2 sec. Colour of mucous membrane was pink. No significant change was detected in skin elasticity. Defecation and urination were normal. Growth was resected under general anaesthesia with the help of bi-polar electro cautery.
