We present the cases of two 10 year-old kids with recurrent earwax impaction in ear canals, with occasional mild hearing loss. Otoscopic examination revealed a narrowing of the external auditory canals, which made it impossible to visualize the tympana, even after the cleaning of the cerumen. This stenosis had not been noticeable in previous otoscopies.

Keywords: Wax impaction. Conductive hearing loss. Congenital aural stenosis.
