Hearing loss following head trauma or head injury is a major medical problem. Trauma related conductive hearing loss can be due to injury to the ossicular chain, hemotympanum or laceration to the tympanic membrane. Sensorineural hearing loss is caused due to injury to the cochlea or organ of Corti. Head trauma associated with ossicular disruption should be suspected in patients with conductive hearing loss that persists after a healing process of 2 months. High-resolution computed tomography is the investigation of choice. Here, we present a case of traumatic isolated incudomalleolar disruption in a 46-year-old male following a road traffic accident. He presented with a persistent conductive hearing loss for 4 months following the incident.
