|Abstract:||Study Design: A retrospective surgical case review. Setting: A tertiary-care, university teaching hospital. Patients: The authors describe a unique case operated on for a middle ear cholesterol granuloma, which had invaded the cochlea and vestibule causing profound sensorineural deafness. Interventions: Extended radical mastoidectomy and labyrinthectomy with musculofascial seal. Results: Successful postoperative outcome with no recurrence seen after 2 years of follow up. Conclusion: To the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case of a primary middle ear cholesterol granuloma with direct invasion into the cochlea. Such invasion of the otic capsule by cholesterol granulomas is rare and presents a diagnostic challenge to the attending otologist and radiologist, Salient points of the case history, pathogenesis, imaging studies, histopathology, and management are presented with a review of the current literature.|
