Usher type II syndrome is defined by the association of retinitis pigmentosa, appearing in the late second to early third decade of life, with congenital moderate to severe non-progressive hearing loss. This double sensory impairment is not accompanied by vestibular dysfunction. To date, only one Usher type II locus, USH2A, at chromosome band 1q41, has been defined. Here, we demonstrate by linkage analysis, that the gene responsible for Usher type II syndrome in a Tunisian consanguineous family… CONTINUE READING
