Bilateral facial (VII th) and vestibulocochlear (VIII th) nerves involvement is a rare presentation and often indicates a severe underlying medical condition. The differential diagnosis of its causes are extensive and so it presents as a diagnostic challenge. Both, physicians and ENT surgeons should be aware of these various diagnostic possibilities to avoid life long complications. We present here a case of 37-year-old female with sequential bilateral facial nerve and vestibulocochlear nerve involvement, which was successfully managed.
