Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to analyze temporal bone necrosis and classify its diagnosis and treatment according to extent of necrosis and cause. METHODS AND MATERIAL: Twenty-six cases of temporal bone necrosis were retrospectively reviewed between 1988 and 1997 at the University of British Columbia. RESULTS: Patients were classified on the basis of disease extent restricted to the tympanic bone or extension beyond the tympanic bone, as well as onthe basis of the cause of disease; treatment based on classification, Patients with localized disease of the tympanic bone had minimal symptoms. Those with radiation-induced localized necrosis were less likely to respond to conservative medical management. Patients with diffuse disease were more likely to require surgical intervention. CONCLUSIONS. Temporal bone necrosis comprises a spectrum of disease from idiopathic tympanic bone necrosis, which rarely requires surgery, to the more severe forms of radiation-induced diffuse temporal bone necrosis that maycause life-threatening complications requiring surgical intervention.
