Craniodiaphyseal dysplasia (CDD) is a rare sclerosing bone disorder, the severity of which depends on its phenotypic expression. Hyperostosis can cause progressive foraminal stenosis leading to palsy of cranial nerves, epilepsy and mental retardation. We report here, the only case of CDD who presented with fever accidentally and was found to have right facial palsy and craniofacial bone thickening on X-ray, which was diagnosed as craniodiaphyseal dysplasia. We believe that this patient represented one of the few examples of a mild form of adult Craniodiaphyseal dysplasia with facial changes and mild conductive deafness in both ears.
