We present a case of 35 year old female with monotonic fibrous dysplasia which presented to us with blocked sensation, impaired hearing, and Discharge right ear with mass in the right mastoid region for the last one year. Main complaint of the patient was decreased hearing and found to be conductive hearing loss. Computed tomography showed diffusely expanded right temporal bone/mastoid, petro us parts and EAC with increased bone density. Patient underwent surgery for contouring of bone and canalplasty which improved hearing status, blocking sensation and discharge completely. Although there was cosmetic deformity but patient was not concerned regarding that, which also improved. Patient is under regular follow-up with very good functional and cosmetic results. From his case report, we learn the importance of conservative surgery and regular follow up in few selective cases of temporal bone fibrous dysplasia.
