Sensorineural hearing loss can be of genetic origin in up to 50% of cases. These genetic entities can exclusively cause deafness or be part of syndromes with other non-auditory alterations. This service is aimed at identifying entities included within this second group. Some of the most frequent syndromes associated with sensorineural deafness and considered in the panel are, among others:
- Waardenburg syndrome.
- Branchio-oto-renal syndrome.
- Usher syndrome (types 1, 2, 3).
- Pendred syndrome.
- Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome.
- CHARGE syndrome.
