Medications for pediatric tinnitus are not widely used due to a lack of evidence‐based information. The modification of risk factors is essential in pediatric tinnitus; however, there is a lack of systematic reviews despite several reports on risk factors. This study performed a systematic review and meta‐analysis of available literature to evaluate risk factors of pediatric tinnitus. 
Prevalence, associated factors, and comorbidities of tinnitus in adolescents
Protection of the ears from noise and appropriate counseling should be considered for adolescents with tinnitus, which was associated with age, female gender, history of ear infection and sinusitis, leisure noise exposure due to karaoke and local-area-network gaming, alcohol consumption, and cigarette smoking.
Tinnitus in Adolescents – Intrinsic and Extrinsic factors

Effects of Secondhand Smoke Exposure and Noise Exposure on Tinnitus Occurrence in College Students and Adolescents.
The relationship between tinnitus occurrence and a combined exposure to noise and secondhand smoke revealed a unique effect in adolescents and young adults.
Auditory brainstem response test results in normal hearing adolescents with subjective tinnitus.
The probable site of origin of tinnitus in adolescents with normal hearing might be in the upper brainstem of the auditory pathway, and further analysis of ABR test results in teenagers with tinn Titus and normal hearing can help clarify the pathophysiology of t Finnitus.
Effects of Non-traumatic Noise and Conductive Hearing Loss on Auditory System Function
How abnormal acoustic experience at early ages affects the ascending and descending auditory pathways, as well as hearing behavior is reviewed.
Salicylate increased ascorbic acid levels and neuronal activity in the rat auditory cortex
Clinical observations have implied a central origin for tinnitus and potential therapeutic effects of ascorbic acid (AA); however, the detailed mechanisms remain undetermined.
Hearing impairment and diverse health outcomes
Globally, it is estimated that approximately 1.3 billion people live with some form of hearing impairment. Major causes of hearing loss include infection/disease, age-related factors, and

Understanding the influences of these factors will help in preventing tinnitus, and participants whose mother had a history of tinn Titus showed higher AORs, however, high body mass index, alcohol consumption, stress, monthly household income, and noise exposure in the workplace showed no statistically significant difference.
Analysis of the Prevalence and Associated Risk Factors of Tinnitus in Adults
Tinnitus is very common in the general population and is associated with gender, smoking, stress, sleep, hearing loss, hyperlipidemia, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, depression, and thyroid disease history.
Clinical observations and risk factors for tinnitus in a Sicilian cohort
The results underline that several factors either individually or jointly contribute to tinnitus onset; a comprehensive knowledge about tinnitis risk factors and associated clinical conditions could contribute to minimizing this disorder.
Prevalence of tinnitus and hyperacusis in children and adolescents: a systematic review
Data on prevalence vary considerably according to the study design, study population and the research question posed, indicating the necessity of examining the epidemiology of tinnitus and hyperacusis in children and adolescents with a set of standardised criteria.

To evaluate the prevalence, characteristics, and associated risk factors of tinnitus in U.S. adolescents, a large number of patients were referred for treatment with or without prior treatment for the condition.
The Prevalence and Characteristics of Tinnitus with Profound Sensori-Neural Hearing Impairment
In the current study, one out of every three children had tinnitus, which raises some professional challenges regarding the effect of tinnitis on the affected children's behavior and performance in school.
Troublesome tinnitus in childhood and adolescence: data from expert centres.
A retrospective case review of patients aged under 18 with a primary complaint of tinnitus seen in 2009 was undertaken in four European clinics known to accept such referrals, indicating that the incidence ofTinnitus in childhood and adolescence is low.
Tinnitus in adolescents: the start of the vulnerability of the auditory pathways.
There was no evidence of minimal hearing damage in the audiometry and OAE, but the decreased LDL in adolescents with constant tinnitus suggests that their auditory system is more sensitive to sounds.
Prevalence and Associated Factors of Tinnitus: Data From the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2009–2011
Tinnitus is a common condition, and a large population suffers from annoying tinnitus in South Korea, and public understanding of associated factors might contribute to better management of tinnitis.
