A tick in the ear is a very painful condition and removal is difficult because it grips firmly to the external auditory canal or tympanicmembrane. Facial paralysis is a rarely reported localised neurological complication of an intra-aural tick infestation. The pathophysiology of localised paralysis is discussed, together with the safe way of handling patients with an intra-aural tick infestation
