This is the third edition of the foremost medical reference on hereditary hearing loss. Chapters on epidemiology, embryology, non-syndromic hearing loss, and syndromic forms of hearing loss have all been updated with particular attention to the vast amount of new information on molecularmechanisms, and chapters on clinical and molecular diagnosis and on genetic susceptibility to ototoxic factors have been added. As in previous editions, the syndromes are grouped by system (visual, metabolic, cardiologic, neurologic, musculoskeletal, endocrine, etc.), with each chapter written by arecognized expert in the field. Written for practicing clinicians, this volume is an excellent reference for physicians, audiologists, and other professionals working with individuals with hearing loss and their families, and can also serve as a text for clinical training programs and for researchers in the hearingsciences.
