Tinnitus is one of the most widespread disorders of the auditory system, affecting approximately 17% of the general
population. In addition, it is one of the most difficult to treat symptoms in audiological practice. It is the perception of
sound in the absence of an appropriate external sound source. Early treatment included boiling earthworms in goose grease,
cedar sap, rose oil, honey, vinegar, wine, cockroaches ground in rose oil and opium. With all scientific advances, up till now,
there is not one medication specific and successful for treating tinnitus. There are a lot of treatment trials, some gained some
success and some failed. The main obstacle with managing tinnitus is the fact that the place of origin and pathogenesis of
tinnitus is not yet determined. Therefore, dealing with tinnitus should not be restricted to certain medical specialty. Rather, we
need to have a multidisciplinary team to study tinnitus and put theories on diagnosis and management. This presentation aims
at putting a hypothesis on how doctors from different medical disciplines can handle the problem of tinnitus, each from his
point of view and how they should meet at certain target point which is finding optimal treatment for tinnitus.
