Abstract
Tinnitus is a common auditory phenomenon associated with many otological diseases, and
is usually subjective. Objective tinnitus can be generated by para-auditory structures, usually
derived from vascular or myogenic sources, or the eustachian tube. We present a rare case
of intermittent unilateral tinnitus associated with eye blinking. Otoendoscopic examination
showed that the external auditory canals and tympanic membranes were normal; however,
rhythmic movements of both tympanic membranes, concomitant with the tinnitus, were
evident whenever the patient blinked. The tympanometry and stapedial reflexes measured
via impedance audiometry exhibited saw-tooth patterns; movement of the tympanic membrane
was associated with eyelid blinking. The patient was managed conservatively, with
reassurance and medication, and the condition became well-controlled. Here, we present
this educational case and review the literature.
