The mode of transmission of hereditary hearing loss may be dominant, recessive, or X linked. Many varieties of childhood deafness can be distinguished by their accompanying anomalies. Other types of hereditary deafness occur, without associated abnormalities. Certain of these types may be delineated by the mode of transmission, age of onset… CONTINUE READING
