Abstract

The temporocele, a rare case of extra-mastoid pneumatization is discussed. It presented as a swelling over the mastoid in a 16-year-old female and the diagnosis was made by computed tomography (CT) scan. It was treated by obliteration by covering the sieve-like mastoid with bone dust and a large piece of temporalis fascia as well as ventilating the middle ear.
