Neurobehcet syndrome is the disease with multisystem involvement. It has known otological manifestations which mainly include hearing loss due the involvement of the labyrinth. Though literature reports some cases of Neurobehcet disease with facial nerve palsy, it is one of the rarest presentations. The diagnosis of neurobehcets is mainly based on the symptomatology as no definitive pathological tests are available. As an otologist is one of the first clinicians to come across a patient with facial nerve palsy, we report this case of neurobehcets disease presenting to us with an ear ulcer and ipsilateral facial nerve palsy.
