Background: Middle ear ventilation and the drainage of secretions are the basic functions of the eustachian tube. Eustachian tube (ET) dysfunction can lead to otitis media. Multiple causes of ET dysfunction exist; ET obstruction is one of them. Osseous obliteration of ET is quite rare. In the literature, there are two cases of solitary osteoma and a case of hamartoma with an osseous content in the ET. Herein, this report describes the case of a patient with multiple osseous lesions consistent with osteomas in the ET, causing ipsilateral otitis media with CT findings.
