Abstract

Gunshot wounds of the temporal bone occur infrequently in a civilian population. Eight such cases are reported and their management discussed. Utilization of microsurgical techniques is mandatory for the adequate removal of missile fragments, assessment of middle ear, mastoid, and facial nerve injuries. It also allows for reconstructive procedures when indicated.
