Arch Otolaryngol. 1973;97(5):406-409. doi:10.1001/archotol.1973.00780010418013

An unusual unilateral ossified mass of the jugular foramen and bulb was found in a skull 2,000 years old. On the opposite side of the obstruction enlarged and widened transverse and sigmoid sulci were observed. The cause of these morphological findings and their possible clinical implications are discussed.
