Introduction: Cholesteatoma of the external auditory canal (EAC) is a rare disease. The symptoms are not specific. Its positive diagnosis is based on clinical and radiological examination. Treatment of choice is surgery. We describe the clinical features, computed tomography findings and surgical approach. Case report: A 5 year-old, male child reported with bilateral congenital aural stenosis and hypoacousia, who developed bilateral cholesteatoma of the external auditory canal. Discussion: Congenital cholesteatoma of the external auditory canal is rare. The clinical symptoms are no specific. Radiological investigation completes the study. Treatment consists of excision of the mass and will depend on the extent of the lesions. A canaloplasty is required.
