Abstract

The purpose of the medical genetic evaluation is to identify the etiology of the hearing loss. To do so requires a multidisciplinary team that includes the otolaryngologist, audiologist, medical geneticist, and radiologist. A number of tests and procedures are now available to assist in the search for the cause of hearing losses. The importance of sensitivity when providing genetic counseling is emphasized. Molecular genetics offers potential for continued progress in understanding the etiologies of hearing loss. Recent advances in this area are discussed.
