External auditory canal atresia, or congenital auditory atresia, is a birth disease marked by underdevelopment of the external auditory canal. This condition frequently leads to abnormalities in the auricle and middle ear structures, and occasionally affects the inner ear structures. It is important to note that the structures of the middle-inner ear may be impacted, although infrequently, in individuals with atresia of the external auditory canal, as was the case with our patient. Furthermore, it is crucial to emphasize the importance of early diagnosis, as it can significantly enhance the patient’s quality of life and expand their options for treatment.
