Non-syndromic congenital hearing loss

V. Radoi, R. Bohiltea, C. Bohiltea, M. C.

Abstract: Non-syndromic congenital hearing loss is a global problem. It is the most common disorder at birth, occurring in 1 - 2 /1000 newborns. Congenital hearing loss leads to delayed language development, impaired psychosocial interactions abnormal behavior and poor educational achievement. Genetic transmission is implicated in 50% of the cases of congenital deafness. Of these, about 70 % are non-syndromic. Genetic counseling is essential to making the parents aware of the most appropriate treatment. Classification and the rationale for screening of hearing loss in the newborn will be reviewed here.

Keywords: non-syndromic congenital hearing loss, genetic diagnosis.
