Abstract

Cochlear dysplasia is a rare congenital anomaly. However, early detection of this anomaly can prevent serious consequences. We describe three cases of cochlear dysplasia that presented with recurrent meningitis and cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) leak in children in which early diagnosis prevented further complications.
