Foreign bodies in ear are very frequently encountered by an otorhinolaryngologist. They should be diagnosed and removed immediately. Otherwise it may cause complications like tympanic membrane perforation, chondritis, ossicular necrosis, facial palsy, inner ear injury or it may migrate to adjacent structures. It may migrate to subcutaneous tissue or middle ear. Migration of aural foreign body to parapharyngeal space is very rare and never been reported in literature. We are reporting this type of very unusual migrated foreign body which was recovered from the parapharyngeal space by a small incision endoscopic assisted approach after 8 years if insertion.
