deafness autosomal recessive type 8

An autosomal recessive form (OMIM:601072) of sensorineural hearing loss caused by damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the auditory cortex.

Molecular pathology
Defects in TMPRSS3, which encodes a putative serine protease that acts as a permissive factor for cochlear hair cell survival, cause deafness autosomal recessive type 8.
