Objective Pulsatile Tinnitus: A Video Clip Demonstration of the Condition



Pulsatile tinnitus is an uncommon condition. We describe a case of pulsatile tinnitus and visually demonstrate a pulsating tympanic membrane caused by a postoperative cerebrospinal leak into the mastoid air cells following resection of a left temporal petrous meningioma. To our knowledge, this is the first case in the literature where an objective pulsatile tinnitus has been captured on video (see www.laryngoscope.com).
