Abstract :

Introduction HeŚ impairment in pediatric population specially in early age could affect their learning abilities, skills and communication. Early diagnosis is utmost important in these cases to prevent this disability permanently. Aims In this study, we evaluate the role of BERA in early diagnosis of heŚ impairment specially in high risk pediatric population. Materials and methods A total 65 high risk cases below 12 years of age are included in the study and BERA was obtained and data obtained and analysed. Results In our study, 40.9 % cases showed heŚ impairment on BERA investigation. Severe to modified heŚ loss was found in 2 4 cases (88.9 %).
