 When a congenital cholesteatoma is diagnosed early as a localized circumscribed mass, it can be resected with a very low risk of recurrence.

A 3-year-old boy with a history of recurrent bilateral otitis media and prematurity was referred to us by his general otolaryngologist for evaluation of a right-sided middle ear mass. The patient had no history of otorrhea, hearing loss, speech delay, or imbalance. Furthermore, he had no history of ventilation tubes, otologic surgery, or perforation or trauma to either tympanic membrane.
