We describe the case of a patient with a postsurgical retroauricular neuroma that was associated with a coexisting arteriovenous aneurysm.
We report a case of traumatic retroauricular neuroma that was associated with a coexisting arteriovenous aneurysm.
Histologic examination revealed that the mass was made up of two separate and adjacent lesions: (1) a traumatic neuroma that was characterized by distorted neural structures embedded in fibrous tissue and (2) an arteriovenous aneurysm that featured a predominance of arteriole-like vessels (figure 1).
Many terms are used to refer to this lesion, notably, arteriovenous aneurysm
, cavernous haemangioma, central haemangioma, pulsatile haemangioma, angioma, arteriovenous shunt, arteriovenous malformation.
