Abstract

Hearing loss affects about 4% of people under 45 years of age and comprises a broad spectrum of clinical presentations (congenital or late-onset, conductive or sensorineural, and syndromic or nonsyndromic). Approximately 30% of genetically determined deafness is reported to occur in syndromic form and 70% in nonsyndromic form. This review highlights recent advances in the molecular and genetic basis of hearing loss, which will help in understanding the biology of normal and abnormal hearing.
