Abstract

Twenty-five temporal bones of cats were studied for the presence of ganglia and/or ganglion cells in the middle ear. These structures were found at the following three main locations: (1) the promontory wall, both anterior to and below the stapes; (2) the capsule of the musculus tensor tympani, proximal, medial, and lateral to muscle fibers; and (3) the vertical portion of the facial nerve. To the best of our knowledge, ganglion cells in the capsule of the musculus tensor tympani, which is located proximal and lateral to the muscle fibers, have not been described previously.
