An eight-year-old girl presented to the outpatient department with a history of decreased hearing from the right ear, bloody ear discharge, and facial deviation to the left side. On clinical examination, she was afebrile with conductive right-sided hearing loss. With a primary diagnosis of unsafe type of chronic suppurative otitis media in mind, computed tomography scan of the temporal bone was performed which showed an aggressive destructive lesion in the petrous temporal bone. Magnetic resonance imaging was then performed to look for soft tissue extension and vascular involvement. Based on the clinical and imaging findings, she was diagnosed as a high-grade neoplasm of the right temporal bone, such as rhabdomyosarcoma. Histopathology finally confirmed the diagnosis of an embryonal type of rhabdomyosarcoma of the middle ear cleft.
