The author describes a rare case of external auditory canal cholesteatoma. This particular case occurred in a 20-year-old woman who had undergone a tympanoplasty 1 year earlier. Previous tympanoplasty is one of several known predisposing factors for external auditory canal cholesteatoma. The mass was excised, and it was diagnosed on histopathology. The patient recovered uneventfully.
