Medial displacement of T-tubes is rare and only 6 cases have been reported in literature. We report a case of a medial displacement of a T-tube in the middle ear behind an intact tympanic membrane with normal mobility. No treatment was undergone as the patient was asymptomatic and no hearing problems were detected. A brief overview of this unusual complication of tympanostomy tubes is presented and the management strategy is discussed.
