Tinnitus in Patients with Chronic Mastoiditis and Cholesteatoma

Simon C. Parisier, Patricia M. Chute, Sharon Kramer, Scott Gold

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tinnitus occurred in 34 per cent of patients with chronic otitis media due to cholesteatoma. Postoperatively, an additional 12 per cent developed this symptom. Following tympanomastoid surgery, a slight depression of bone conduction was observed in patients both with and without tinnitus. Restoration or preservation of hearing acuity did not correlate with the presence or absence of tinnitus. Tinnitus is a common symptom in young patients with chronic ear infections.
