Abstract Congenital cholesteatoma has a different pathophysiology than acquired cholesteatoma in that these patients rarely have eustachian tube dysfunction. This likely accounts for their reasonable preoperative hearing and their lack of complications or recurrences postoperatively. The most important factor is early detection. Treatment remains surgical removal.
