Studies on an isolated West Indies population. III. Epidemiologic study of sensorineural hearing loss.

An epidemiologic study of hearing loss was undertaken on a small Caribbean island and revealed a high frequency of abnormal audiograms among the population of French origin. Since there is no clear-cut discrimination between hypoacusis and normal hearing, but rather a continuous spectrum, the degree of hearing loss was quantified by an audiometric index, using the results of audiograms performed on 70% of the inhabitants. No environmental factors could be identified, although the effect of such factors is highly suggested by several observations of deafness aggravated by, or appearing after, a small dose of ototoxic antibiotics, and also by a strong residual age effect after correction for physiological presbyacusis. Hearing loss was found to be sparsed all over the island. Familial aggregation was noticed for several severe cases.[1]
