Destruction of condyle of mandible is an extremely rare complication of malignant otitis externa. Here we describe such a rare instance in a patient with malignant otitis externa. It is very important to diagnose this category of patients and treat them accordingly. The available data indicate the need for external drainage. We report a case with malignant otitis externa with temporomandibular involvement treated successfully with radical mastoidectomy and drainage of the joint through the external auditory canal and an external incision was avoided.
