The diagnosis of cholesteatoma is made on otoscopic examination, including endoscopic and microscopic evaluation, imaging, or surgical exploration. The symptoms of cholesteatoma vary; some cholesteatomas are asymptomatic, whereas others become infected and rapidly cause bone destruction. Some patients will present with slowly progressive conductive hearing loss and, frequently, with chronic otitis and purulent otorrhea. The otorrhea from an infected cholesteatoma often is malodorous because of the frequent infection with anaerobic bacteria. Some patients will have signs and symptoms of the complications of a cholesteatoma: vertigo and hearing loss caused by a labyrinthine fistula, facial nerve paralysis, or intracranial infection.
there are some contraindications to the use of exclusively endoscopic approaches. For example, if cholesteatoma involves the mastoid cavity, it is not possible to control and remove it by only a transcanal approach; the use of the microscope in combination with the endoscope is recommended. Also, a narrow external ear canal, or external ear malformation, can pose general anatomical difficulties for exclusively endoscopic approaches.
