Article by the late Roy Robinson on the association of congenital hearing loss with whiteness and blue eye color.
White Cats and Deafness
by Roy Robinson
The completely white cat, especially the long haired, is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful of breeds. The eye colour may be orange or blue; or even one eye orange and the other blue on occasion. These cats are healthy and fertile except for one problem, there is a propensity for impaired hearing. The genetics of the white is simple. The colour is produced by a dominant gene W which is responsible for several different features. These are:
  • white coat,
  • blue iris to the eyes and
  • deafness. The white coat is invariably manifested but the blue irises and deafness are produced in only a proportion of cats. Both of the latter may be expressed either unilaterally or bilaterally. When a variety of effects are consistently produced these are termed a syndrome. It is not usual for one feature of a syndrome to be regularly expressed while the others are less regular. This is conventionally interpreted as variable expression of the syndrome. The mildly effected cat would have a white coat but normal eye colour and normal hearing. The extreme expression would be a white cat with two blue eyes and deaf in both ears. The white coat is produced by an absent of melanin pigment granules in the hairs. Consequently, the hairs are translucent and appear white to human vision. The blue iris colour is due to a deficiency of pigment granules which affect the structure of the whole eye. The impaired hearing is due to a progressive degeneration of vital organs for hearing in the inner ear.

    Full size image available below Deafness Genes Hearing is one of the basic elements of human communication, yet millions of Americans are hearing impaired. Currently only a few strategies for overcoming the deficiency exist. For example, some people with a moderate case can overcome the impairment with hearing aids, which amplify sounds. Others bypass the communication setback with sign language. Researchers now hope that new findings on the genetic component of deafness will help expand treatment options. Painstaking analysis has led to the recent discovery of a large number of mutated genes that are involved in causing deafness in humans. An understanding of how these genes operate is helping researchers devise biological strategies to protect or restore human hearing. Nag. Nag. Nag. You shut the door to block out the rantings from the other room. Ahhh. Peace.
    But what if the silence was endless? Many individuals spend life unable to detect nagging yells as well as romantic whispers, telephone chit chat and radio tunes because their hearing system is damaged. In fact, about 30 million Americans have moderate to severe hearing impairments.
    Sometimes the impairment is triggered by an outside source. Toxic drugs, infections or booming noises louder than 90 decibels like a jet engine roar can injure a hearing system.

    What is the BAER test?
    By: George M. Strain, PhD
    The hearing test known as the brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) or brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) detects electrical activity in the cochlea and auditory pathways in the brain in much the same way that an antenna detects radio or TV signals or an EKG detects electrical activity of the heart. The response waveform consists of a series of peaks numbered with Roman numerals: peak I is produced by the cochlea and later peaks are produced within the brain. The response from an ear that is deaf is an essentially flat line. In the sample recordings shown below Puppy 1 heard in both ears, Puppy 2 was deaf in the left ear, Puppy 3 was deaf in the right ear, and Puppy 4 was deaf in both ears.

    White-linked Deafness in Australian Shepherds
    By Pam Bethurum, ASCA Educational Coordinator
    In the very early years of the breed and conformation showing, it was not uncommon to see dogs in the show ring and being bred that had excessive white trim. These dogs had white stifles carrying up into the body color, white body splashes coming up from the belly, excessive collars and white on the ears. If you look at the first ASCA Yearbook, you will find pictures of some of the early IASA and ASCA Specialty winners, some of which had excessive white. As the Breed grew in popularity and numbers, most of the conscientious breeders were very stringent on their breeding practices in regard to white. Those puppies with white ears, white over eyes, white stifles, etc., were removed from the breeding population. Most of the really excessive Irish pattern dogs were eliminated from the gene pool and the occurrence of pups with excessive trim became fewer and fewer. With the growing popularity of our breed, more and more new breeders and kennels, and the breed's recognition by AKC, we are beginning to once again see more dogs in the show ring with full white ears, etc. This article is a discussion on white-linked deafness caused by the Irish spotting gene.

    72. Congenital Deafness And Its Recognition
    Highly technical paper concerning congenital hearing loss in cats and dogs from a veterinary perspective.
    Veterinary Clinics of North America: Small Animal Practice - Special Issue: Pediatrics - July, 1999 Congenital Deafness and Its Recognition George M. Strain, PhD Professor of Neuroscience, Veterinary Physiology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, School of Veterinary Medicine; and Associate Vice Chancellor, Office of Research and Graduate Studies, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 70803 This work was supported by Grant No. 1R15DC01128-01 from the National Institutes of Health and by a grant from the American Kennel Club. George M. Strain, PhD Comparative Biomedical Sciences School of Veterinary Medicine Louisiana State University Baton Rouge, LA 70803 (225) 578-9895 (fax) Synopsis Congenital deafness in dogs and cats is primarily of the hereditary sensorineural form associated with white pigmentation genes, although acquired forms of deafness are possible. Highest prevalence is seen in white cats, especially those with blue eyes, and the Dalmatian, with many other dog breeds affected to some extent. This deafness results from degeneration of the cochlear blood supply at age 3 to 4 weeks, presumably resulting from suppression of melanocytes by the white (cat) or merle or piebald (dog) genes. Mechanism of inheritance is not understood for most breeds. Such animals should not be bred and may present liabilities for their owners. Objective diagnosis of deafness, especially when unilateral, relies on the brain stem auditory evoked response, an electrodiagnostic test where electrical activity in response to a click stimulus is recorded from the scalp using needle electrodes and a special purpose computer. Client counseling guidelines are presented.

    75. Deafness
    Beethoven. deafness. Beethoven s career as a virtuoso pianist was brought to an end when he began to experience his first symptoms of deafness.
    Beethoven's career as a virtuoso pianist was brought to an end when he began to experience his first symptoms of deafness. In a letter written to his friend Karl Ameda on 1 July 1801, he admitted he was experiencing signs of deafness. How often I wish you were here, for your Beethoven is having
    a miserable life, at odds with nature and its Creator, abusing
    the latter for leaving his creatures vulnerable to the slightest
    accident ... My greatest faculty, my hearing, is greatly
    Apparently Beethoven had been aware of the problem for about three years, avoiding company lest his weakness be discovered, and retreating into himself. Friends ascribed his reserve to preoccupation and absentmindedness. In a letter to Wegeler, he w rote: How can I, a musician, say to people "I am deaf!" I shall, if
    I can, defy this fate, even though there will be times when I
    shall be the unhappiest of God's creatures ... I live only in
    music ... frequently working on three or four pieces simultaneously.
    Many men would have been driven to suicide; Beethoven may indeed have contemplated it. Yet his stubborn nature strengthened him and he came to terms with his deafness in a dynamic, constructive way. In a letter to Wegeler, written five months after the despairing one quoted above, it becomes clear that Beethoven, as always, stubborn, unyielding and struggling against destiny, saw his deafness as a challenge to be fought and overcome:

    Causes of deafness. Genetics deafness can be inherited. Adaptations to deafness. Many deaf individuals use certain assistive devices in their daily lives.
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    To be deaf is commonly understood to mean to be unable to hear. However, the word is used and understood from two very divergent perspectives. First, there is the medical/pathological/audiological sense of the word and from this perspective deafness is seen as a disease or impairment . Opposing that perspective, there is the use of the term deaf in the cultural sense of the word. When the word deaf is used in this sense it is often capitalized. This split in perspectives causes what can seem to be odd constructions using the word. For example, a person could be said to be deaf but not Deaf. Conversely, one could be Deaf and yet not be deaf. Therefore, it can be important to discern which sense the word is being used by a speaker or writer. To learn more about the use of this word in the cultural sense, see: Deaf culture Table of contents 1 Causes of deafness 2 Medical treatments 3 Adaptations to deafness 4 Historical attitudes toward deafness ... edit
    Causes of deafness
    Genetics Deafness can be inherited. Both dominant and recessive genes exist which can cause deafness. If a family has a dominant gene for deafness it will persist across generations because it will be expressed in the offspring even if it is inherited from only one parent. If a family had genetic deafness caused by a recessive gene it will not always manifest as it will have to be passed onto offspring from both parents.

    Testing ... powered by Message Forum Chatroom Email This website was developed in an effort to provide access to information about Auditory Neuropathy to the parents of children diagnosed with this unusual hearing disorder. Auditory Neuropathy, referred to as AN, is a confusing diagnosis that has sparked conflict among professionals in the field of audiology. Because AN is not a typical hearing loss it is misunderstood by many audiologists, speech language pathologists, and teachers of the deaf. Many parents of children diagnosed with AN have received conflicting information and advice about diagnosis, management, and recommendations as to which mode of communication they should use with their children. Hearing aid use with AN is a heavily debated topic among professionals in the field. Some facilities have chosen to use hearing aids with AN children with limited success. There is current research stating that hearing aids are useful if about 50% of the cases but again, this is disputed among professionals. There is also professional disagreement over the use of cochlear implants in patients with AN. As the number of successfully implanted AN children grows, there are more and more referrals for cochlear implantation evaluations being made. Seminars for audiologists are being held throughout the country to promote and encourage understanding of the disorder and it's management.
