Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a rare condition and is benign in nature. There is narrowing of external auditory canal leading to conductive hearing loss. We present a case of a 23‑year‑old male with a diagnosis of FD with the complaint of blocking sensation and reduced hearing in the left ear for 2 months. Canaloplasty was carried out by Wilde’s postauricular incision following which there was a significant improvement in hearing threshold. This case report highlights the importance of diagnostic tests such as audiometry, tympanometry, high‑resolution computed tomography, and histopathological examination. It also highlights the importance of hearing outcomes postsurgical intervention.
