Congenital Cholesteatoma

Congenital cholesteatoma is a collection of skin that forms in the middle ear before birth.

Diagnosis for Congenital Cholesteatoma

Diagnosis of congenital cholesteatoma is made when examination of the ear shows an intact ear drum (as opposed to the typical perforated or retracted ear drum seen in acquired cholesteatoma) with a visible cholesteatoma behind it.  A CT scan is also useful in making this diagnosis.
