Abstract:
This case report describes the clinical and imaging features of biopsy-proven calcium pyrophosphate crystal deposition disease of the malleoincudal joint in a 73-year-old woman. We discuss imaging clues that helped differentiate this very rare presentation of crystal-induced arthropathy from more common cholesteatoma in the diagnosis of conductive hearing loss.
