Baby Girl, a 12-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair feline, presented to our South Florida veterinary practice for chronic recurring otitis externa. Previous otic aerobic cultures were submitted and treated appropriately. The otitis would subside for a short period and then recur.

Due to the severity of the otitis externa, along with swelling and bleeding, it was difficult to fully evaluate the suspected ear polyp within the ear canal without sedation.
