In most cases of cholesteatoma, patients have a history of occasional scanty ear discharge, tinnitus, and gradual progression of hearing loss that may not bother their daily activities. Therefore, late presentation may occur when this group of patients attributes little importance to the otological symptoms. We report a patient with bilateral cholesteatoma who presented with mastoid abscess on the left ear and automastoidectomy on the right ear. Early detection and management of cholesteatoma is crucial in preventing its complication.
