Keratosis obturans is a condition of the external ear canal and could be described as an intensification of keratin plugs within the canal. The disease may lead to erosion and widening of the external auditory canal. Undiagnosed wax keratosis may lie passively for a long period without revealing any symptoms. We report a case that was largely silent causing exposure of the vertical segment of the facial nerve.
