The cholesteatoma acquired associated with the sequence of cleft lip and palate is a common sequel in children as a result of a malfunction of the Eustachian tube. The clinical-otological picture, the otomicroscopy and the efficiency of the surgical treatment in a 9-year-old patient with cleft lip and palate and cholesteatoma on the right ear complicated with meningitis are presented. The risk for complications of otitis media with chronic effusion and the importance of its early diagnosis in stages previous to the formation of cholesteatoma are stressed.
