The presence of a tick in the ear is an uncommon problem encountered by the department of otorhinolaryngology. A tick infestation in the ear can be a traumatising experience for the patient. Here, we report a case of a woman who presented with left facial weakness due to the presence of a tick in the external auditory canal.
