MetadataShow full item record
During temporal bone development and formation it is noted the presence of a foramen in the medial portion of the external auditory canal (foramen of Huschke). This foramen is normally present until the age of 4 or 5 years old, but in some people it persists throughout life. The persistence of this foramen and its clinical implications related to the temporomandibular joint, ear and nearby structures has been reported by many authors. Therefore, it is important that dentists, otorhinolaryngologists, speech pathologist and physiotherapists have a wide knowledge about the consequences of the presence and persistence of the foramen of Huschke.
