Abstract

External auditory canal cholesteatoma (EACC) is a rare condition characterized by the growth of keratinizing squamous epithelium within the external auditory canal. EACC can cause a range of symptoms and its delayed diagnosis can lead to irreversible damage and potential complications. Treatment involves surgical removal of the cholesteatoma, but nonetheless, EACC remains a challenging condition requiring careful management and follow-up.
