Tinnitus is one of the Ménière’s disease clue symptoms, but by far less studied than vertigo or other types of dizziness. The typical Ménière’s tinnitus is a low pitched fluctuating one. Although controversial, cochlear Ménière’s disease may account for a tinnitus subtype, a fact that may impact on tinnitus diagnosis and treatment. Further studies focused on tinnitus are necessary to clarify at which extent Ménière’s disease may have a role in some types of chronic tinnitus.
