These included: (1) a left-sided osteoma of the internal auditory meatus (figure 1, A); (2) a right-sided labyrinthitis ossificans in a patient with previous meningitis (figure 1, B); and (3) bilateral cochlear calcification, worse on the right than the left, in a patient with a clinical diagnosis of otosclerosis.
