A case report on glomus jugulare from India.We present a case of a 15-year-old male, with 6 months history of tinnitus and progressive hearing loss, presented with facial nerve palsy (House-Brackmann V). Computed tomography scans demonstrated an enhancing soft tissue lesion with erosion of jugu-lar bulb, invasion of the petrous and tympanic bone, middle ear and vertical part of facial nerve with erosion of postero medial wall of left TM joint (type C2 of Fisch’s classification for GJT). Intraoperatively the mastoid part of the facial nerve was identified involved by tumour and needed to be resected. Inter positioning cable grafting with greater auricular nerve, harvested at the beginning of the surgery is done. Total tumour resection is done with a remarkable postoperative course. The patient also presented with improve-ment in facial nerve function after 6 months. The patient consented with publication of his images.
