Abstract

Posterior dislocation of mandibular condyle into the external auditory canal is a rare pathology, with very few cases reported in the literature. This report describes a case of partially edentulous elderly male with unilateral dislocation of intact mandibular condyle posteriorly into the external auditory meatus, managed by open reduction and condylectomy. The clinical signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and management are illustrated along with a brief review of the pertinent literature.
