Abstract In reporting on a case of peripherical facial paralysis due to tuberculous otitis media attention is called both to the present rarity of tuberculous otitis and to the frequency of the attack of this infection to the facial nerve, emphasis being made on the paralysis regression following surgical treatment (mastoidectomy and facial nerve decompression) and use of specific medication.

Os autores apresentam um caso de paralisia facial periférica devido a uma otite média tuberculosa. Chamam atenção para a raridade atual da otite tuberculosa e para a freqüência com que esta afecção compromete o nervo facial. A regressão da paralisia após tratamento cirúrgico (mastoidectomia e descompressão do nervo facial) e medicamentoso específico foi assinalada.
