We report the case of an 18-year-old male patient who presented to us with unilateral conductive hearing loss with duplication of the lobule. An exploratory tympanotomy revealed stapes footplate fixation. A stapedotomy with insertion of a Teflon piston was performed with improvement in his hearing. We believe this is the first reported case of such an abnormality.
