The pre-operative CT scans were reported to assess characteristic cholesteatoma findings, location and extension of soft tissues in middle ear, integrity of scutum
, erosion of the ossicular chain, integrity of the thin bony septum of facial nerve canal, the semicircular canals and the tegmenextension of cholesteatoma outside the middle ear, integrity of mastoid air cells, trabeculae, as well as relationship and proximity of soft tissues with the tympanic membrane were assessed.
The specimen presented absence of a genital opening, triangular base of the capitulum, lanceolate hypostome and elongated scutum
with unomamented rugose surface, and was thus identified and classified as a nymph of A.
