Otosclerosis is considered an abnormal growth of the bones within the middle ear. This bone prohibits the structures in the ear from functioning properly and in turn causes loss of hearing.

This image shows the anatomy of the outer, middle, and inner ear. The three ear ossicles are located in the middle ear (malleus, incus, and stapes). The stapedius and tensor tympani in the middle ear function to lower the volume of excessive sounds. The eustachian or auditory tube in the middle ear drains middle ear fluid. The auditory tube is more parallel in infants and not as parallel in adults. This is the reason why infants are more susceptible to ear infections.

The mastoid antrum is an air space in the petrous portion of the temporal bone, communicating posteriorly with the mastoid cells and anteriorly with the epitympanic recess of the middle ear via the aditus to mastoid antrum . These air spaces function as sound receptors, provide voice resonance, act as acoustic insulation and dissipation, provide protection from physical damage and reduce the mass of the cranium.
