Cholesteatoma is not an uncommon pathology that affects the ear. Masses of keratin invade and expand into the ear destroying the surrounding structures by mechanical expansion as well as through proteolytic enzymes that attack bone matrix. Cholesteatoma acquires a different spectrum when it invades medially into the petrous temporal bone. In this rare incidence, medially growing cholesteatoma not only becomes more dangerous but its surgical removal becomes a surgical challenge. Its medial location is surrounded by the brain, cranial nerves and major blood vessels. In this communication we present the different classifications adopted in the literature which serve in the diagnosis and in selecting the appropriate surgical management plan. We also present our surgical experience in managing this rare pathology.
