We examined 395 temporal bones with an intact tympanic membrane to explore the relationship between residual inflammation in the middle ear cavity and development of mastoid pneumatization. Histopathological changes were studied in the middle ear cavity. Mastoid pneumatization was classified as good or poor based on the extent of mastoid tip development to the lateral semicircular canal. Specimens were 344 temporal bones with well-pneumatized mastoid and 51 with poorly-pneumatized mastoid… CONTINUE READING
