Inbred LP/J mice develop abnormal bony lesions that are grossly and histologically similar to the lesions of human otosclerosis. This is the first known occurrence of spontaneous otosclerosis-like lesions in an animal. As in the human disease, these lesions impair audition by immobilizing the ossicles of the middle ear. The LP/J mouse may be an animal model for this common human disease.
