The recent the recent identification of genes with hearing loss.

These genes chromosome chromosome 13, and which produce the protein connexin 26, which is present in the cochlea. Connexin 26 gap junctions generated responsible for maintaining potassium levels in the cochlear endolymph.

GJB2/GJB6 families without mutations have clinical genetic evaluations to assess possibility syndrome diagnosis. Other tests can temporal bone computed tomography, evaluation for prenatal infections such as toxoplasmosis, syphilis and cytomegalovirus, renal ultrasound, urinalysis, electrocardiogram, thyroid studies, and ophthalmologic evaluation.
