OBJECTIVE the purpose of this study was to document the aeration and drainage pathways of Prussak's space. METHODS 55 temporal bones with an age range from neonate to 11 years of age were serially sectioned to 20 microns, every 10th section was saved and stained by Hematoxylin eosin. Each consecutive section was studied as to the connections of Prussak's space to adjacent compartments and measurements of the dimensions were made for both Prussak's space and its aeration pathways.
