Severe deafness or hearing impairment is the most prevalent inherited sensory disorder, affecting about I in 1,000 children1. Most deafness results from peripheral auditory defects that occur as a consequence of either conductive (outer or middle ear) or sensorineuronal. (cochlea) abnormalities. Although a number of mutant genes have been identified that are responsible for syndromic (multiple phenotypic disease) deafness such as Waarden 2-4 burg syndrome and Usher 1B syndrome2–4, little is… CONTINUE READING
