KEYWORDS
ABSTRACT
Otosclerosis is most often diagnosed in adults, especially women. It is much less common in children and even rarer in boys. The aim of this paper is to present the case history and results of surgical treatment of a 5-year-old boy with bilateral conductive hearing loss and tinnitus. Results of surgical treatment show mean air-bone closure of 25 dB and cessation of tinnitus. Surgical treatment for otosclerosis is recommended regardless of the patient’s age. Additional motivations for surgical intervention in children are: severe progressive hearing loss, tinnitus, and rising bone-conduction threshold.
