Abstract

We report a case of a patient complaining of severe high pitched tinnitus, dizziness, joint/muscle pain and gastrointestinal symptoms. A mild high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss of cochlear origin was diagnosed in the ear where tinnitus was present. The patient reported a considerable decrease in tinnitus and other symptoms with a gluten-free diet. Gluten sensitivity may have contributed to the pathogenesis of tinnitus in our patient; further research is needed to determine the exact role of gluten in this condition.
