WFS1-Related Disorders

Common Name(s)

WFS1-Related Disorders

Low frequency sensorineural hearing loss is an unusual type of hearing loss in which frequencies of 2,000 Hz and below are predominantly affected. Many patients have tinnitus, but there are otherwise no associated features such as vertigo. Because high frequency hearing is generally preserved, LFSNHL patients retain excellent understanding of speech, although presbycusis or noise exposure may cause high frequency loss later in life. LFSNHL worsens over time without progressing to profound deafness; in contrast, low frequency hearing loss linked to DFNA1 ({124900}), caused by mutations in the DIAPH1 gene ({602121}), is associated with progression to profound deafness by the fourth decade of life (summary by {1:Bespalova et al., 2001}).
