Tinnitus is one of the most important symptoms in neurootology after vertigo, nausea, and hearing loss. In most cases, the origin of the tinnitus remains inexplicable. Wellknown, however, is that tinnitus may arise in any part of the hearing pathway (j.e., both within the cochlea receptor and in the temporal lobe and projections). Tinnitus also is associated frequently with vertigo, nausea and hearing loss. An age predominance exists, with tinnitus more common among those older than 40 years. From this starting point, a great demand exists today for new ideas and developments in the diagnosis and treatment of tinnitus.
