Abstract:Isolated fracture of the malleus seems to be an extremely rare ossicular injury. All previously reported cases involved the handle of the malleus. This is the first reported case of fracture of the neck of the malleus. The diagnosis can easily be missed because the tympanic membrane remains intact. Furthermore, the history may not be suggestive. Surgical repair is particularly difficult.
