Objective: To summarize the clinical characteristics of tinnitus patients, including accompanying symptoms,contributing factors, severity and relations with systemic diseases. Methods: We have conducted a questionnaire of 90 patients who suffer subjective tinnitus and visit of the Otolaryngology-head and Neck Surgery of the Chang Hai Hospital from May of 2011 to June of 2014,and take a record. All the patients were interviewed by the same investigator, using the same questionnaire. Results: 60.0% of patients had accompanying symptoms, mainly of that was hearing loss and ear fullness and vertigo. 8.9% of the patients had aggravating factors,mainly was mental factors and fatigue. The severity of the different gender of tinnitus patients had no significant difference(P>0.05), the severity of the tinnitus patients of different ages have obvious difference(P<0.05). Tinnitus in patients with systemic disease history and tinnitus loudness had no significant correlation(P>0.05). Conclusions: Tinnitus patients often accompanied by hearing loss, nausea and dizziness, its severity is associated with patient age, gender and systemic diseases history has nothing to do with the patient.
