Abstract: Skin cancer of external ear is a very aggressive type of cancer with spread to the parotid gland, bone structures of the lateral skull base, meninges and brain tissue. At the same time, malignant tumors of the external ear are very rare disease, accounting for 0.2 % of all malignant head and neck tumors. This fact explains the small amount of investigation in this scientific field. Now, does not exist unanimous opinion about the treatment tactics for patient with locally advanced ear cancer. Surgical tactics for volumes of block resections of the temporal bone are different. Controversial issues relate to the appropriateness of surgical treatment in general in the case of advanced tumor process. In this article we performed publication analysis devoted to selection of optimal treatment tactics for patient with locally advanced ear cancer.
