  • Otosclerosis

    Typical findings on these hearing test include low-frequency conductive hearing loss and absent acoustic reflexes.[brighamandwomens.org] Early in the disease course, pure-tone audiometry usually demonstrates low-frequency conductive hearing loss.[emedicine.medscape.com] Next steps will include hearing tests that measure hearing sensitivity (audiogram) and middle-ear sound conduction (tympanogram).[brighamandwomens.org]

  • Apert Syndrome

    More than 56% developed permanent low frequency conductive hearing loss by 10–20 years of age.[adc.bmj.com] Current estimates say that fifty percent of children with Apert Syndrome will develop permanent conductive hearing loss in the low frequencies by age 19.[smartspeechtherapy.com] The incidence of congenital hearing impairment was 3–6%. Almost all had otitis media with effusion, which tends to persist into adulthood.[adc.bmj.com]

  • Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence

    Symptoms of SSCD include: Tullio phenomenon (experiencing vertigo after being exposed to a loud sound), low frequency conductive hearing loss in the presence of a supra-normal[neurotucson.com] Hearing Tests Audiometry testing typically shows low frequency conductive hearing loss although other types of hearing loss may be found.[verywellhealth.com] The unusual presentation of Case 1 with a history of bilateral SNHL with total recovery in one ear and a low frequency conductive hearing loss may be confused with cochlear[scitechnol.com]

  • Progeria

    Later findings include low-frequency conductive hearing loss, dental crowding, and partial lack of secondary tooth eruption.[flybase.org] Low-frequency hearing loss was defined as hearing thresholds 15 dB averaged over 250, 500, and 1,000 Hz.[pnas.org] For audiologic testing, sensorineural and conductive hearing status were assessed by bone and air conduction, respectively.[pnas.org]

  • Postoperative Dehiscence

    Audiology testing may demonstrate a lowered threshold for vestibular evoked myogenic responses and low-frequency conductive hearing loss.[ingentaconnect.com]

  • Tympanoplasty

    One should be careful not to disrupt an intact and mobile ossicular chain if the hearing loss is only low-frequency conductive, as is often the case with hearing loss secondary[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Absent Auditory Canals

    This causes a slight to mild low-frequency conductive hearing loss. If the Eustachian tube ventilates the middle ear, the loss vanishes.[chargesyndrome.org] In CHARGE, it is common to have malformed ossicles that cause significant conductive hearing loss – especially for low pitch or low frequency sounds.[chargesyndrome.org] In general, the conductive losses are greatest for the low frequencies and the sensorineural losses are greatest for the high frequencies.[chargesyndrome.org]

  • Progressive Deafness with Stapes Fixation

    Patients may be unaware at first of the low-frequency conductive hearing loss until it exceeds 25 dB, but may complain that speech sounds “hollow.”[enetmd.com] If the otosclerotic process begins to develop anterior to the footplate, the footplate becomes displaced posteriorly, resulting in a low frequency conductive hearing loss.[enetmd.com] The jammed footplate first maintains the capacity for transmission in the higher frequencies.[enetmd.com]
