Middle-ear cholesteatoma is a serious illness of the ear, which untreated can often lead to serious complications. The treatment is always surgical. The operation focuses on removing the cholesteatoma and repairing damaged structures like the ossicular chain.

This review gives an overview of symptoms, signs in otoscopy and treatment modalities of cholesteatoma patients in Denmark.
