Synonyms: Isolated genetic deafness | Isolated genetic hearing loss | Non-syndromic genetic hearing loss

Deafness is the most frequent form of sensorial deficit. In the vast majority of cases the deafness is termed nonsyndromic or isolated and the hearing loss is the only clinical anomaly reported. In developed counties 60-80% of cases of early-onset hearing loss are of genetic origin.
