In all affected individuals, primarily the encoding and non-encoding exons of the GJB2 (NM_004004) gene were reproduced using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with appropriate primers under appropriate conditions and examined using sequence analysis (CEQ8800, Beckman Coulter, ABD).
In conclusion, this patient represents a classic case of the rare entity, PEODDN, and draws attention to recent discoveries that a genetic mutation in GJB2 is causative.

A deafness-causing gene, GJB2, was identified in 1997 that encodes an inner ear connexin protein called connexin 26 (Cx26), forming part of the potassium-recycling pathway used to maintain the osmotic balance essential for normal auditory function (McGuirt & Smith, 1999).
