Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to investigate the presence of GJB2, GJB3, and GJB6 gene mutations in non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss (NSHL) cases living in Sivas region, to provide appropriate genetic counseling for cases who were found to have mutation, and to contribute to decrease the frequency of mutant allele in the next generation and plan treatment and rehabilitation with early diagnosis.
