ABSTRACT

Complications of iontophoresis have been discussed in the literature, but to the best of our knowledge, facial paralysis has not been described. A case of facial paralysis with associated nystagmus and vertigo after iontophoresis of an ear with a previously unrecognized tympanic membrane perforation is presented, and the pertinent literature is reviewed.
