  7. 7. CAUSES OFSENSORINEURAL DEAFNESS► Genetic  Inherited dominant recessive x-linked► Non-genetic  Infections  Ototoxic drugs  Metabolic disorders  Inherited dominant, recessive x-linked trait  Rubella, CMV, Toxoplasmosis, Syphilis, HSV
  8. 8. PERINATAL CAUSES► Ototoxic drugs► Radiation► Ultrasound► Maternal diabetes  Hypoxia  Hyperbilirubinemia  Preterm delivery  Low birth weight
  9. 9. DEAFNESS IN CHILDRENHearing centre 80% maturation by two years 98% by 5 yearsstimulationSpeech centreDevelopment of speech Larynx, tongue, oral cavity, pharynx
  10. 10. RISK FACTORS FOR HEARING IMPAIRMENT► Positive family history► Intrauterine infection  Rubella, Syphilis, CMV, Toxo (TORCH)► Anatomical abnormalities (Ear,Head,Neck)► Low birth weight < 1500 g► Neonatal asphyxia► Hyperbilirubinaemia► Bacterial meningitis► Ototoxic drugs
  11. 11. EARLY SCREENING AND MANAGEMENT► Before 2 years Excellent► 2-5 years Good► After 5 years Poor
  12. 12. Neonatal responses► Startling reflex (Responds to loud sound)► Aural-palpebral reflex► Change in heart rate► Change in pattern of respiration► Backward head jerk► Moro reflex (increase in general body activity)
  13. 13. Aged 4 months► Child notices sound► Responds by stilling and listening► Child becomes still and smiles to a parent’s voice
  14. 14. Aged 6 months► Begins to turn its head to the source of sound

  20. 20. AUDIOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT► Pure tone audiogram► Tympanogram► Brainstem evoked response audiometry (BERA)► Confirm the degree of deafness, type and level of deafness
  21. 21. PREVENTION► Prevention► Treatment of underlying cause► Hearing aid► Cochlear implant
