Temporal bone chondrosarcomas have been mistaken for multiple sclerosis, glomus jugulare
tumors, meningiomas, and chordomas.

Abstract: Glomus jugulare
tumors are rare, normally benign, paragangliomas located in and around the jugular foramen at the base of the skull.
We report the unique finding of a petrous apex cholesterol granuloma associated with a paraganglioma, also known as a glomus jugulare
tumor, in a 52-year-old woman who presented to our department with pulsatile tinnitus, hearing loss, aural fullness, and disequilibrium.
Approximately 80% of these tumors are either carotid body tumors or glomus jugulare
Another promising use of Extend at Barnes-Jewish Hospital will be glomus jugulare
tumors, according to Dr.
Magnetic resonance imaging of the head and neck demonstrated multiple skull base lesions consistent with bilateral carotid body tumors, a left glomus jugulare
, and a right glomus vagale.
suggest a new approach to tackling complex glomus jugulare
tumors that was successful in a majority of 43 cases they analyzed.
The differential diagnosis of hemotympanum and/ or a vascular retrotympanic mass includes trauma, an anomalous course of the petrous ICA, carotid aneurysm, high position of the jugular bulb, and a vascular tumor such as glomus tympanicum or glomus jugulare
1) In many of the reported cases, jugular fossa meningiomas mimicked glomus jugulare
tumors and lower cranial nerve neuromas.
1) Glomus jugulare
and glomus tympanicum tumors are both found in the temporal bone.
It can be difficult to distinguish a glomus tympanicum tumor from a glomus jugulare
tumor or an aberrant internal carotid artery (ICA) on the basis of the clinical presentation alone.
