Sensorineural hearing loss in children

Abstract

Advances in audiologic testing of young children and more widespread implementation of neonatal hearing screening are providing a better understanding of the epidemiology of pediatric sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). SNHL in children is caused by many acquired and inherited factors. New discoveries in the molecular genetics of hereditary hearing impairment help us understand the physiology of normal hearing and the pathophysiology of many forms of SNHL. Cochlear implants offer children with profound SNHL the ability to perceive acoustic stimuli, when amplification with hearing aids is not helpful.
