Mondini deformity accounts for majority of cochlear malformations. These children can be given a near-normal lifestyle by performing cochlear implant (CI) surgery. The results of standard incision cochlear implantation (SICI) in these children are very encouraging. However, there are very few centers in world which offer the minimal incision cochlear implantation (MICI) in these patients. We report a case of 2-year-old child suffering from Mondini deformity who underwent CI with MICI. MICI reduces the impact of surgery drastically in these children as it can be performed without shaving of hairs with a 2-cm incision. The complication rate of MICI is comparable to SICI. Apart from better cosmesis, another advantage is early switch on of the device. We are of the opinion that MICI is safe and can be successfully performed in cases of Mondini deformity without any fear.
