Approximately 154 different chromosomal loci associated with non- syndromic deafness have been mapped/reserved that include 59 autosomal dominant loci, 88 autosomal recessive loci, 6 X linked loci and one Y-linked locus. Of these, 25 genes have been identified for autosomal dominant (DFNA), 39 for autosomal recessive (DFNB) and 3 for X-linked (DFN) deafness (Hereditary Hearing Loss Home Page, URL: http://hereditaryhearingloss.org/ Accessed May, 2012).
