Aberrierende A. carotis interna als Ursache eines pulssynchronen Tinnitus: Schwierige Diagnose in der MRT?


Soyka, M B; Schuknecht, B; Huber, A M (2010). Aberrierende A. carotis interna als Ursache eines pulssynchronen Tinnitus: Schwierige Diagnose in der MRT? HNO, 58(2):151 -154.

Abstract

We present the case of a 43-year-old patient with sensorineural hearing loss and the finding of an aberrant internal carotid artery in the left tympanic cavity that was causing pulsatile tinnitus. The aberrant vessel was initially invisible on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and was confirmed by high-resolution computed tomography and MR angiography (MRA). Recognition of an aberrant course of an internal carotid artery often requires a combination of MRI and MRA to establish the diagnosis and rule out other differential diagnoses.
