Özet

In this study, the percent of wormian bones in congenital aural atresia group was higher than healthy group, when tested by the Fisher exact test, there appeared to be no significant statistical difference. However, in congenital aural atresia surgery, surgical manipulation can dislodge these bones causing injury to the surrounding structures. Therefore, the radiologists should report the presence of wormian bones in the peritemporal area.
