Objective: The aim was to determine the clinical characteristics and analysis of surgical treatment of patients with glomus tympanicum hospitalized in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology.
Material and methods: Between 2000 and 2015, 27 patients were hospitalized. Age ranged 28-79 years old. The study analyzed data from the clinical examination and the type of surgical technique.
Results: The most common symptoms were tinnitus and hearing loss. Resection of the tumor was performed by anterior tympanotomy in 3 (11,1 %), CWU mastoidectomy in 21 (77,8 %), CWD mastoidectomy in 1 (3,7 %), lateral petrosectomy in 2 (7,4 %) patients.
Conclusion: Glomus tympanicum have a quite characteristic clinical picture with dominant symptoms of tinnitus, hearing loss and reddening of the tympanic membrane in otoscopic examination. This type of tumors require surgical treatment. Surgical access depends on the size of the tumor in the tympanic cavity. Most of these tumors can be removed using antromastoidectomy, with posterior tympanotomy and hypotympanotomy.
