The setting was a tertiary referral center.


Two patients diagnosed with exophytic libro-osseous temporal bone lesions were included in the study.


The intervention used was suruical excision.

Main Outcome Measure:

The main outcome measures were clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic examination.
