• A 10-year-old boy had conductive deafness caused by a highly situated enlarged jugular bulb in contact with the lenticular process of the incus. Results of jugular phlebography showed that nearly all the venous return from the dural sinuses was via the ipsilateral transverse sinus and jugular vein.
