Abstract: The incidence of tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing noise in the ears) may be greater among children than in adults, particularly among children with some degree of hearing loss. This fact sheet offers information about children and tinnitus. The fact sheet, from the British based Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID), first discusses the prevalence rates of tinnitus in children, the symptoms in children (which tend to be intermittent), risk factors for becoming aware of or bothered by the tinnitus, the need to reassure parents of children with tinnitus (children are often not bothered by their own tinnitus), and the association of tinnitus with otitis media with effusion (middle ear infection, called 'glue ear' in the British literature). The fact sheet then details the causes of tinnitus, including Meniere's disease, spontaneous emissions of tones, temporary conductive deafness, noise-induced tinnitus, and hearing loss with recruitment; and treatment options, including tinnitus maskers, hearing aids, and tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT). 1 reference.
