ALBERTINO, Sergio; ASSUNCAO, Aída R. M. de  and  SOUZA, Jano A.. Pulsatile tinnitus: treatment with clonazepam and propranolol. Rev. Bras. Otorrinolaringol. [online]. 2005, vol.71, n.1, pp.111-113. ISSN 0034-7299.

Pulsatile tinnitus synchronous with heartbeat is rare and normally has vascular origin: arterial (malformation, arterial anatomical variation) or venous (aberrant jugular bulb, glomus tumors, tympanic glomus tumor). Early etiology identification is essential for appropriate treatment to be established. Magnetic angioresonance makes the vascular identification possible and precise. We report a case of arterial anatomical variation in which the treatment was propranolol and clonazepam, showing tinnitus improvement.

Keywords : pulsatile tinnitus; vascular disease; treatment.
