deafness autosomal recessive type 6(redirected from neurosensory nonsyndromic recessive deafness 6)
deafness autosomal recessive type 6An autosomal recessive form (OMIM:600971) of sensorineural hearing loss, which is due to damage or defects of neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the auditory cortex itself.
Defects of TMIE, which encodes a transmembrane inner ear protein that may be required for normal postnatal maturation of sensory hair cells in the cochlea, cause deafness autosomal recessive type 6.
