Abstract

Evaluation and management of tinnitus presents a significant challenge to the internist and the otolaryngologist. Tinnitus may be divided into two basic categories: subjective and objective. The importance of a thorough history and physical examination is emphasized in this article. The steps in a complete evaluation and the rationale for referral to an otolaryngologist are outlined. Multidisciplinary care of the tinnitus patient is best coordinated by the otolaryngologist.
