Patients having CSOM with definitive cholesteatoma with or without complications were included in this study in different age & sex belong to different socioeconomic conditions.

One hundred patients of different age and sex belonging to different socioeconomic conditions were examined meticulously under magnification and investigated as per protocol. The study shows poverty, illiteracy, overcrowding, living in slum with kuntcha floor, bathing in ponds and river with the habit of swimming are the main etiological factors.
