Abstract

Thinking about Tinnitus

Author(s): Carlos A. Oliveira

In 1989, I did a thorough search of the medical records and histopathologic features of the temporal bones in the collection of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. During their lifetimes, these patients had had significant tinnitus. The goal was to find a histopathologic correlate for tinnitus in the cochlea. Although · no such correlate could be found, some thoughtprovoking facts were verified. In this paper I want to share these thoughts hoping that others will follow their suggested investigational lines.
