Abstract

Temporal bone malignancy presents a significant clinical challenge for the otolaryngologist. This article provides an overview of squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone, including clinical presentation, diagnosis, staging, treatment, and prognosis. As demonstrated in this case study, the prognosis for patients with advanced-stage temporal bone malignancy is poor, even with maximal therapy.
