Minimal Hearing Loss

Minimal Hearing Loss (MHL) is a commonly overlooked clinical problem; it affects about 5% of children. Children with MHL may be at risk academically due to their poorer speech perception in the noisy classrooms. MHL has generally been defined as a group of hearing disorders that include mild hearing loss, unilateral hearing loss, and high-frequency hearing loss. MHL may result from conductive disorders such as otitis media with effusion or different sensorineural disorders. Recently, we investigated the effect of second–hand smoke on the hearing of children. Passive smoking was correlated with development of sensorineural MHL.
