Bilateral external auditory canal cholesteatoma - a case report



Bilateral external auditory canal cholesteatoma - a case report



Polski Merkuriusz Lekarski 38(228): 335-339



The external auditory canal cholesteatoma is a rare and difficult to diagnose disease. Symptoms are similar to the external ear canal inflammation and can be masked by retained cerumen. In the article we described a case of 22 year old, mentally impairment women with bilateral otorrhea, in the past treated for external ear canal inflammation. The otoscopic examination showed bilateral congenital auditory canal stenosis, with masses obstructing ear canals. Imaging and histopathologic studies revealed bilateral external ear canal cholesteatoma. The patient was qualified for surgery, which, together with a guardian, did not consent. Presented case indicates the necessity for widening the diagnostic of recurrent external ear canal inflammation.
