This definitive reference work replaces Konigsmark and Gorlin's Genetic and Metabolic Deafness (1976). Whereas the earlier volume covered 151 genetic conditions related to hearing loss, this work covers 435. As before, the authors first discuss isolated hereditary hearing loss and then present hearing loss syndromes such as those involving the nervous system, eye, external ear and musculoskeletal system. The discussions are authoritative, practical and well-illustrated, and those of the most important syndromes are very detailed. Introductory chapters deal with the history of the field, clinical approach, embryology of the ear, tooth anomalies and hearing loss, and related endocrine and metabolic disorders. Throughout, the authors pay careful attention to nomenclature and classification. This will be an invaluable resource for all professionals concerned with genetic hearing loss, including medical geneticists, audiologists and otolaryngologists.

Review:

From reviews of the first edition: "The target audience of this high quality book is very large. Both novice and experienced clinicians, medical geneticists, researchers and teachers will find an impressive wealth of information."--Trends in Genetics "Although several books on genetic hearing impairment are available, this 2nd edition gives the most comprehensive and updated information and should -within the field- be considered 'the book'!!" --Audiological Medicine "Hearing loss is perhaps the most prevalent of all the chronic diseases with over 20 million Americans suffering from hearing impairment severe enough to affect their ability to communicate...The publication of this book is cause for celebration...This book stands alone as a standard reference on hereditary hearing loss. It will be an essential tool for all otorhinolaryngologists, medical geneticists, and other health care workers serving those with hearing disorders and their families."--The New England Journal of Medicine "This book is an invaluable source of information for otolaryngologists, clinical geneticists and all those who care for patients with deafness and congenital malformations. Like other volumes by the same authors, it is destined to become a 'classic'."--Annals of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada "This reference is the most comprehensive book on the subject of hereditary deafness since Konigsmark and Gorlin's text, Genetic and Metabolic Deafness, published in 1976. This sequel has been long awaited by professionals and students in the fields of genetics, otolaryngology, and speech and hearing...An excellent reference which will prove to be an invaluable resource."--Journal of Genetic Counseling From reviews of the first edition: "The target audience of this high quality book is very large.
