Glossary for Otosclerosis

  • Autosomal Dominant Genetic Diseases: Any conditions that are related to any non-sex-determining chromosome
  • Autosomal Genetic Diseases: Any conditions that are related to any non-sex-determining chromosome
  • Conductive deafness: Any hearing loss or impairment caused by a defect in part of the ear that conducts sound.
  • Conductive hearing loss: Hearing loss due to a defect in the external auditory canal or middle ear.
  • Deafness: Inability to hear sounds.
  • Dominant Genetic Diseases: Genetic disease where the mutated gene is dominant
  • Ear and Hearing conditions: Medical conditions affecting the ears or the hearing systems.
  • Ear conditions: Any condition that affects the ear
  • Genetic Disease: Any disease that is handed down to oneself through the chromosomes of ones parents
  • Glue ear: Fluid accumulation in the middle ear
  • Head Conditions: Conditions that affect the head
  • Hearing impairment: Reduced ability to hear sounds.
  • No symptoms: The absence of noticable symptoms.
  • OI, Type I: A genetic condition characterized mainly by fragile bones that fracture easily and blue sclerae. The fractures tend start during early childhood (when walking starts) and becomes worse after menopause or in old age. Fractures tend to heal normally. Type I is the mildest form of osteogenesis imperfecta and results from a reduced amount of normal collagen in the body. Other forms of osteogenesis imperfect tend to involve the presence of abnormal collagen.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta: Weak bones ("brittle bone disease") and loose joints
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta Type I: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by fragile bones, blue sclerae and hyperextensible joints.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta type IV: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by fragile bones and blue sclerae. The osteoporosis tends to be moderate and there is generally no joint hyperextensibility.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 1A: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by fragile bones and hyperextensible joints - a type of osteogenesis imperfecta I where the teeth are opalescent and blue sclerae may be absent.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 1B: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by fragile bones and hyperextensible joints - a milder form of osteogenesis imperfecta I where the teeth are normal and blue sclerae may be absent.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 4: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by fragile bones and blue sclerae - a form of OI involving moderate osteoporosis and no joint hyperextensibility.
  • Sensorineural deafness: A condition which is characterized by deafness due to a sensineural deficit
  • Tinnitus: Hearing noises in the ears: ringing, roaring, clicks, whistling, or hissing.
  • Tunglang-Savage-Bellman syndrome: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by hearing loss and abnormal salivary gland function.
