We report a case of a 63 years old man who presented with a profusely bleeding mass in the left external auditory canal. He had been diagnosed to have left skull base osteomyelitis and had undergone surgery twice for the same. The mass was diagnosed radiologically to be a pseudoaneurysm arising from the left retroauricular artery. He subsequently underwent embolization of the retroauricular branch of the left external carotid artery following which the mass subsided and bleeding from the ear stopped.
