Hydatic cyct is a common parasitic infestation caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus. It may affect any organ and tissue in the body, in particular the liver and lung. Hydatid cyst in the head and neck region is very rare, even in countries where echinococcus infestation is endemic. We report the case of a 52-year-old female patient presenting with a hydatid cyst in supraclavicular region with hepatic involvement. The definitive therapy comprised excision of the cystic mass and postoperative medical treatment.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is an epithelial tumor observed in the head and neck area, which is rarely encountered in the external auditory canal. Taking biopsy after otomicroscopic examination from the patients who come to the clinic with nonspecific symptoms helps us with the diagnosis. In the staging of patients, computerized tomography (CT) is a useful method and shapes the treatment. A number of approaches for management of these tumors have been described in the literature including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, and their combinations can be applied. We will hereby present a case with 55 years of age, who was applied lateral temporal bone resection, total parotidectomy, supraomohyoid neck dissection, and then radiotherapy treatment, with the adenoid cystic carcinoma in the right external auditory canal.
