The differential diagnosis of middle ear tumor is numerous and variable. In this care report, we describe a patient who presented with conductive hearing loss and was found to have a middle ear meningioma. This is one of the few reports of this rare middle ear tumor, and it serves to remind otolaryngologists that meningioma can sometimes occur in the middle ear.
