Jeff, I recall my father telling me about "objective" tinnitus many years
ago but I have never heard the term since. (He has been dead for more than
twenty years.) Have you ever observed it in a patient? What would cause the
"vascular anomalies" to be loud enough to be observed by another person?
Wouldn't that have to be pretty loud? Do you normally hold a stethoscope to
the ear? I can't help wonder how someone happened to come across this
phenomena. Of course, a logical question any person with tinnitus would ask
is, "Can you hear it too?"
