2017 [4]) Stage I Cholesteatoma localized in the attic Stage II Cholesteatoma involving two or more sites Stage III Cholesteatoma with extracranial complications or pathologic conditions including Facial palsy, Labyrinthine fistula: with conditions at risk of membranous labyrinth, Labyrinthitis, Postauricular abscess or fistula, Zygomatic abscess, Neck abscess, Canal wall destruction: more than half the length of the bony ear canal, Destruction of the tegmen: with a defect that requires surgica repair, and Adhesive otitis: total adhesion of the pars tensa.
Aedeagus cans present three states: with tegmen, with weak sutures in tegmen or with basal part totally separate of parammeres.

Furthermore, the presented case had features of tegmen tympani erosion, which is suggestive of a central nervous system risk lesion.

Radiological signs indicating cholesteatoma in the attic included erosion or destruction of scutum or spur (the lateral wall of the attic), widening of the aditus ad antrum (loss of figure of "8" appearance) , antral wall erosions and widening , ossicular erosions and destruction , medial attic wall erosion which may lead to facial nerve canal involvement, which may cause paresis or paralysis , erosion of the lateral semicircular canal which may result into fistula formation (Figure 1), dehiscence of tegmen tympani , dehiscence of sigmoid sinus plate, erosion of the external auditory canal (EAC), and automastoidectomy.
[12] Other areas of erosion include the tegmen tympani, the bony plate covering the sigmoid sinus, the squama of the temporal bone and rarely the vestibular labyrinth.
[sup][14] Briefly, under general anesthesia, cortical mastoidectomy was performed with identification of the horizontal semicircular canal, tegmen, sigmoid sinus, and mastoid antrum after making a postauricular incision.

The scutum, ossicles, and tegmen tympani are common sites for erosion.
The specimens compared with previous description showed a marked difference of 13mm in body length, 18 mm of tegmen length in male while in case of female 7mm in body length, 13mm of tegmen length and 7mm of hind femur length was recorded.
