Fibrous dysplasia is a benign disease where all components of normal bone are present, but they fail to differentiate into mature structures. Management of temporal bone fibrous dysplasia is conservative. Surgery usually in the form of canaloplasty is performed in cases of complication like hearing loss, canal cholesteatoma, etc., In this report we would like to give emphasis on the role of mastoid exploration in the treatment of fibrous dysplasia of temporal bone especially in context of hearing results. 2 cases of temporal bone fibrous dysplasia underwent surgical treatment in a tertiary hospital. Hearing of the patient improved significantly in one case whereas there was no auditory benefit in the other case with inner ear involvement.
