A 63-year-old woman presented to the otolaryngology outpatient department with a 1-year history of right-sided facial paralysis. The facial paralysis had initially been diagnosed as Bell palsy, but failure of response to conservative management prompted the patient’s general practitioner to refer her to an otolaryngologist. The facial nerve weakness had been slowly progressive. The patient also complained of reduced hearing in her right ear but denied any pain, vertigo, or tinnitus.
