Middle ear myoclonus is a rare condition which leads to objective tinnitus. We report a 12-year-old boy who presented with bilateral ear tinnitus posttrauma. Endoscopic ear examination reveals rhythmic movement of the tympanic membrane with continuous clicking sound from the bilateral ear; otherwise, other structures were normal. Left endoscopic stapedius and tensor tympani tenotomy were performed and had brought immediate temporary relief for this patient. We discuss the rarity of the disease and the management strategies for this rare condition.
