• Inherited cochleosaccular dysplasia occurred in a woman coincidentally with Down's syndrome. Study of the right temporal bone revealed abnormalities of the cochlea and saccule consistent with Scheibe's original description. There was also a short cochlea and small lateral semicircular canal consistent with previous descriptions of Down's syndrome.
