We report an unusual case of a 13-year-old girl with a benign osteoma associated with a cholesteatoma in the external auditory canal and serous otitis media. The osteoma was located in the antero-inferior wall of the right external auditory canal. A cholesteatoma was present between the osteoma and the tympanic membrane. Computed tomography revealed a soft tissue density within the external auditory canal and in the middle ear cleft. The shadow in the middle ear cleft was considered to represent the serous otitis media. Surgical removal of the osteoma and cholesteatoma proved successful, and no recurrences or complications have occurred in the first year postoperatively.
