Takeshi Kusunoki MD*, Saito Kazuya MD, Katsuhisa Ikeda MD
Two cases of external auditory canal cholesteatoma arising in the posterior wall were treated using an operative method we devised. After antrotomy with an open technique, depending on the size of the residual mucosa in the antrum, cortical bone plate was used to close the space between the posterior external canal and the antrum. Additionally, the posterior external auditory canal wall was reconstructed with the cortical bone plate and temporal fascia.

Lezrag M*, Mouna K, Makhatri A Abada R, Rouadi S, Roubal M and Mahtar M
The malignant secondary tumors of the mandible are rare afflictions due to the poverty of hematologic tissue in this bone.
