Superior semicircular canal dehiscence is a relatively new syndrome in the field of otology. It is of unknown etiology presenting with a variety of vestibular and auditory symptoms and radiologic findings play a crucial role in its diagnosis. Cone beam computed tomography has been shown to be a powerful tool in the field of otolaryngology. It is a three(More)

Oncocytoma is a rare benign salivary gland tumour with an incidence rate about 1-2%. It is located in the parotid gland in 82% of cases. The aging mitochondrial hypothesis could explain the predilection between 70 and 90 years. Clinical and radiological features of the parotid oncocytoma are not different from those of the others parotid benign tumors. We(More)
