Congenital cholesteatoma of the middle ear and mastoid is an otologic challenge receiving increasing attention. Its site of origin and pathogenesis are still a matter of controversy. However, its power of eroding bone makes it a potentially dangerous condition that needs surgical intervention. We present two cases of congenital cholesteatoma which were involving the middle ear in one and localized in the mastoid in the other. Our pitfalls in the diagnosis were discussed after a literature review on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment.
