Exceptional Continuous Tinnitus in a Vascular Loop Syndrome of the VIIIth Cranial Nerve

Background: A case of tinnitus possibly due to vascular loop compression of VIIIth nerve is presented.

Case presntation: A33-years old female suffers from tinnitus beginning 4 years ago. An extensive clinical and laboratory investigation did not reveal any abnormal finding except MRI signs of a vascular loop pressure of VIIIth nerve.

Discussion: The medication did not help the patient and she refused to undergo surgery. We present the arguments of the causal relationship of the findings on MRI and symptoms of the patient.

Conclusion: Tinnitus due to vascular pressure is a syndrome which should be considered in differential diagnosis in case of tinnitus.
