Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hearing one's own heart murmur has been reported in adults, but has not been reported in the pediatric literature. This study reports the case of a young child who clearly heard her own venous hum, causing her to complain of pulsatile tinnitus. This entity should be included in the differential diagnosis of pulsatile tinnitus and by doing so pediatricians and cardiologists may avoid ordering unnecessary diagnostic procedures.
