Abstract

Background: Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit with many genetic and environmental underpinnings. While causative DNA variants have been identified in over 100 genes, most deafnesscausing variants are rare, apart from a few exceptions. A single SYNE4 variant co-segregating with hearing loss has recently been reported in two Middle-Eastern families. Case Report: In this report we present two members of a family with non-syndromic high frequency sensorineural hearing loss who are homozygous for a novel pathogenic SYNE4 variant c.129-1G>T. Conclusion: This case report provides supportive evidence for the causative role of SYNE4 variants in hearing loss by presenting an additional family with a novel DNA variant.
