Since 1982, I have been evaluating the hearing of individuals with CHARGE syndrome or working in some capacity with families that have a child with CHARGE. Individuals with CHARGE have an extraordinary array of problems that include the most extensive set of auditory problems that I have encountered in any group of patients. CHARGE may affect the structures of the auditory system from the pinnas to the corpus callosum. The purposes of this communication are to provide a brief description of CHARGE, to place the hearing loss in context with the other problems in the syndrome, and to describe the methods used by parents to get appropriate treatment for a child with CHARGE.
