Labyrinthine ossification after meningitis: its implications for cochlear implantation.

Labyrinthine ossification can be found in a high percentage of patients with profound deafness resulting from bacterial meningitis. Radiographic evidence of ossification can be found as early as 2 months after the acute infection, indicating that the intracochlear process probably begins much earlier.

Illustrative case reports and suggested guidelines for evaluation and treatment are given.
