    Objective: The etiology of hearing loss is heterogeneous and falls into the two broad categories of genetic and environmental. In the genetic subgroup, 70% are non syndromic. Fifty percent of nonsyndromic sensorineural deafness is due to a mutation in the connexin 26 gene. This article presents...
