Schneiderian papillomas (ISP) of the middle ear are uncommon conditions, with only 45 cases published within literature. They are locally aggressive tumours, with a high rate of recurrence and associated malignancy. We present a rare case of a 53-year-old man presenting with unilateral pulsatile tinnitus, otorrhoea, aural fullness, pruritis and hearing loss. Angiography was employed to exclude a glomus tumour and the patient underwent a modified radical mastoidectomy. Tissue samples confirmed a histological diagnosis of ISP of the middle ear. Follow-up magnetic resonanc imaging one year postoperatively showed no evidence of disease recurrence.
