    Hearing Loss
    with a
    Mitochondrial Gene
    Mutation is Highly
    Prevalent in
    Japan.

    1999

      

    Sensorineural
    hearing loss (SNHL)
    of unclear origin
    may have a genetic
    basis 
    in most
    patients. 
    Mutations
    in the
    mitochondrial
    genome may make
    the individual
    sensitive to SNHL

      

    In
    randomly selected
    patients with
    bilateral SNHL, 3%
    had nucleotide
    3243 (nt3,243)
    mutation. 
    This
    indicates that the
    SNHL caused by the
    nt3243 mutuation
    is widely
    distributed and
    may be one of the
    specific details
    of the genome
