Arteriovenous hemangiomas are benign vascular lesions. A network of arterial and venous structures is characteristic of these cutaneous vascular tumors. Vascular lesions are commonly found in the head and neck region. These lesions may involve the ear, usually extending from external ear canal to involve the tympanic membrane. Lesions limited to the external ear canal without involvement of tympanic membrane are very few and those reported may be counted on fingers. However there is no documented cases of lesions involving and limited only to the concha of the external ear in the English literature. Here we report the first such case of arteriovenous hemangioma involving and limited to the concha of external ear.
