This work on otospongios is to evaluate our experience in management. It is a rare pathology in our context more precisely in the black race. The studies on this pathology concerned the study on whites. The prevalence of this pathology remains obscure in our context. In our structure we have tried to highlight the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. We collected fourteen cases of otosclerosis. The clinical examination and the computed tomography allowed us to choose the operable cases in 85.8% with favorable consequences. Our study highlights the lack of management familiarity of these cases especially in the black race.
