Ear problems often associated with Self Injurious Behaviour

Ear problems . 
The most commonly reported ear problem in Cornelia de Lange Syndrome is chronic otitis media (middle ear infection)

Approximately 50% of head-banging that is commonly seen in many children under the age of five, who do not have intellectual disabilities is associated with this problem 31. There is no reason to think that children with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome should respond any differently to this painful condition than children without intellectual disabilities.
