Every mastoid, no matter how poorly developed, has a single large air cell called the antrum (Fig. 3). Lateral to the antrum is a thin plate of bone named the Korner septum. Anatomically, the Korner septum, also named the petrosquamosal septum, is an embryonic fusion plane of the squamous and petrous bones. At the base of the antrum is a dome of dense ivory bone (labyrinthine part of the otic capsule) formed by the lateral (or horizontal) semicircular canal (Fig. 4). This is the key surgical landmark in the temporal bone.
