Abstract

Objective: To determine the prevalence of hearing loss and abnormal tympanometry in children with skeletal dysplasia. Design: Clinical screening program. Setting: National convention of the Little People of America. Patients: Convenience sample of volunteers aged 18 years or younger with skeletal dysplasias. Interventions: Hearing screening with behavioral testing and/or otoacoustic emissions, otoscopy, and tympanometry. Main Outcome Measures: A failed hearing screen was defined as hearing 35 dB HL (hearing level) or greater at 1 or more tested frequencies or by a "fail" otoacoustic emissions response. Types B and C tympanograms were considered abnormal. Results: A total of 58 children (aged
