Abstract

This study involving 281 French tinnitus sufferers sought to investigate possible correlations between psychopathological profile and scores obtained from three tinnitus questionnaires. The patients all completed a French version of the Mini-Mult – a shortened Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory – and French translations of three questionnaires designed especially for the clinical assessment of tinnitus: Tinnitus Reaction Questionnaire (TRQ), Subjective Tinnitus Severity Scale (STSS) and Tinnitus Handicap Questionnaire (THQ). Significant correlations were found (p < 0.0001) between scores on various Mini-Mult scales and total or factor 1 THQ and total TRQ scores. No significant correlation was found between the STSS and any Mini-Mult score.
