Abstract

Otic lichen planus (LP) is rare and associated with stenosis of external auditory canal, conductive hearing loss (HL) and otorrhea. We report the case of a 78 years old woman affected by otic LP complaining mixed HL. We successfully treated the patients with local therapy and with bone-anchored hearing device.
