The Greater Auricular Nerve (GAN), a branch of the cervical plexus, is used to provide anesthesia or pain relief in the ear and neck region. This case report details the use of a GAN block in a 71-year-old male patient with basal cell carcinoma on his right auricular helix. Due to multiple comorbidities (myocardial infarction resulting in a cardiac stent, hypertension), regional anesthesia was preferred. We aim to share our experience with the GAN block for ear surgery.

Keywords: External ear surgery, GAN block, greater auricular nerve.

Bu olgu raporunda, kulak cerrahisi geçirecek olan hastada ultrason eşliğinde Nervus Auricularis Magnus sinir bloğu deneyimimizi paylaşmak istedik. Sinir bloğu; 71 yaşında, sağ dış kulakta basal hücreli karsinomu bulunan hastaya uygulandı. Hastanın birçok komorbiditesi vardı (kalpte stent, hipertansiyon gibi). Bu nedenle bölgesel anestezi tercih edildi.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Auricularis magnus, dış kulak cerrahisi, GAN blok.
