Abstract

Pneumolabyrinth is condition in which the vestibule or cochlea is filled with air. It is rarely detected even in otic capsule violating fracture. Air trapped in internal auditory canal, which is also extremely unusual finding of temporal bone fracture involving otic capsule is reported from only one literature. Here, we report on a patient showing unilateral concurrent pneumocochlea, pneumovestibule and penumo-internal auditory canal (IAC). To the best of our knowledge, air trapping concurrently inside the cochlea, vestibule, and internal auditory canal has not been reported before in the literature.
