Facial nerve paralysis is a common problem encountered in the ear nose throat out-patient department (ENT OPD). Impacted wax and its adverse effects in the external ear canal are also quite routinely seen. Rarely do the two come together in the same patient. We report a case of unilateral facial nerve palsy that presented an interesting diagnostic dilemma.
