Cholesteatoma

Cholesteatoma

In some babies, right from birth a fluid filled sac (‘cyst’) may be found in the ear or skull bone, this is known as cholesteatoma. It can occur because of infection of the ear (‘otits media’). They may be unable to hear, may be dizzy and a foul smelling discharge (‘suppurative’) may leak from the ear. Surgery is performed to remove this cyst.
