Abstract

KS is an important anatomic handicap predisposing the individual to chronic otitis media, particularly when it is characterized by attic retraction pockets and cholesteatoma, and adhesive otitis media, because KS contributes to attic blockage. This statement is in accordance with the original articles written by Cheatle (1910, 1923) and Williams (1966), and recently published data related to supratubal recess and the cog (Tono et al., 1996).
