Abstract

The aim of this document is to improve the management and the treatment of unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss in children. One in one thousand newborn infants has unilateral hearing loss and this prevalence increases with age, due to cases of acquired and delayed-onset hearing loss.

Although the impact on the development and learning processes of children of these kinds of hearing loss have usually been minimized, if they are not treated they will impact on language and speech development, as well as overall development, affecting the quality of life of the child and his/her family.

The outcomes of the review are expressed as recommendations aimed at clinical diagnosis and therapeutic improvement for unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss.

Keywords:
Unilateral hearing loss

Resumen

El objetivo del presente documento es contribuir a la mejora del manejo de la hipoacusia unilateral y de la hipoacusia asimétrica en la infancia. Las sorderas unilaterales afectan a uno por mil de los recién nacidos, aumentando su prevalencia con la edad, debido a los casos de aparición diferida o adquirida.

Aunque se ha minimizado el impacto de estas sorderas sobre el desarrollo y los aprendizajes del niño, si no son tratadas provocan secuelas sobre el desarrollo del habla y del lenguaje, así como en el desarrollo global, afectando a la calidad de vida del niño y de su familia.

El resultado del trabajo de revisión llevado a cabo se plasma en la formulación de unas recomendaciones orientadas a la mejora clínica diagnóstica y terapéutica de la hipoacusia unilateral y de la hipoacusia asimétrica.
