Congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) is a significant cause of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) in children. This study asks, are there audiometric measures that are characteristic of cCMV and could be used to distinguish cCMV from other nonsyndromic causes of SNHL? Preliminary results suggest that cCMV infected children present with a larger difference in hearing loss between the better and worse hearing ears when compared to children with SNHL caused by Large Vestibular Aqueduct (LVA).
