Abstract

We report a unique case of an ossicular chain injury in a young man. Despite the fact that the patient's incus was dislocated into the external auditory canal while remaining attached to the stapes, his hearing was not affected and remained nearly normal. We discuss the patient's presenting features and our diagnostic and management strategy in this case.
