Background: The purposes of this study were 1) to know the frequency of using endoscope in both diagnosis and surgery of otologic field in Korea, and 2) to present the photos of cases managed with an oto-endoscope. Methods: A postal questionnaire survey was carried out to evaluate the usage of endoscope among the otologists in Korea. Photo documentation of the cases dealing with endoscope was done. Results: Thirty nine otologists are replied to the questionnaire. They were using the endoscope for the patients in clinic sometimes, not routinely. Twelve otologist were always using endoscope for the new patients in the clinic. Most of the otologists never used the endoscope for the surgery. Conclusions: Usage of otoednoscope in Korea was not common in both diagnostic and surgical fields. More generous attitudes might be needed to this new technology for the possible advantages of the otoendoscope. (J Clinical Otolaryngol 2008;19:51–56)
