Abstract

Tremendous progress has been made over the past 25 years in identifying genes responsible for nonsyndromic or syndromic deafness. However, clinical challenges remain that limit the number of patients for whom a genetic etiology can be determined. This chapter will address the diagnostic evaluation of patients with hearing loss, considering the audiological, radiological and clinical aspects.
