Pulsatile tinnitus is a rare yet potentially disabling symptom that can have either vascular or nonvascular etiologies. A recently described vascular cause is an aneurysm of dural venous sinuses. To our knowledge, eight of such cases have been published, five of which were treated surgically and three by endovascular approach. We describe one additional case treated successfully by endovascular coiling and review the current data on this subject.
