Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to describe audiological and radiological characteristics, and other secondary aspects, in a family carrying a T961G mutation in the 12S rRNA mitochondrial gene. Design: Case report. Study sample: Six members of a family participated in an audiological evaluation that included pure-tone audiometry, immittance tests, auditory brainstem responses (ABR), and otoacoustic emissions (OAE). The radiological evaluation was conducted through temporal bone CT scans using a Toshiba 16 channels Aquilon Spirale. Neuropsychiatric evaluation was also administered. Results: Three participants were diagnosed with severe sensorineural hearing loss of cochlear origin and cochlear malformations visible in CT scans. One participant had a mild mixed-hearing loss and no cochlear malformations. Two participants had normal audiological and radiological findings. Conclusions: We believe our study can provide helpful insight on the clinical findings of a rare mutation, of which few data have been presented in literature.
