Osteoid osteoma is an uncommon primary benign tumor of the temporal bone. The tumor has tendency to occur in all the bones of the body, however its occurrence in the temporal bone and middle ear is extremely rare. Patients may present with postauricular swelling in cases of involvement of mastoid part of temporal bone. Radiological investigation and excisional biopsy is usually necessary for diagnosis. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice as it has tendency to recur, cause local invasion and the rarest chance for malignant transformation. We report a case of rare benign osteoid osteoma involving the mastoid part of temporal bone.
