A nevus in the external auditory canal is very rare. So far, fewer than 20 cases of nevus in external auditory cnal have been reported in the literature. In this case the patient presented with complaints of ear discharge, otalgia, and deafness. These symptoms are present in common diseases like polyp with otitis media, unsafe otitis media or keratosis obturans or rarely a malignant lesion. The purpose of this case report is to keep in mind such rare possibility with common symptoms of presentation and relevant management of the disease can be done thus avoiding unnecessary extensive surgery.
