Cholesteatoma - Causes and Risk Factors

Cholesteatoma may either be congenital (i.e. you are born with it) or acquired later in life.

Risks factors for acquired cholesteatoma include previous infection, a hole in the ear drum (tympanic membrane perforation) and previous otologic surgeries. Other risk factors include a poorly functioning Eustachian tube which results in negative pressure in the middle ear and a resultant retracted ear drum
