Definition

A form of non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information. DFNA71 is characterized by bilateral mild to moderate hearing loss before age 20 years, which gradually progresses to severe to profound hearing loss.
