Genetic hearing loss due to variants in GJB2 and POU3F4. Presentation of a case

Project: Research Project

Project Details


Approximately 40% of hearing losses are of congenital origin.

Early identification and accurate diagnosis of the characteristics, severity, and cause of hearing loss allows defining appropriate therapeutic options and influences the prognosis of children.

The present work describes a case of a child with congenital hearing loss in whom variants in the GJB2 and PO3F4 genes are reported and is a cochlear implant user with absence of auditory response, in order to discuss the management of the case in a multidisciplinary manner.
