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.
