Background and aim: Recent studies have revealed a genotype-phenotype correlation for mutations in the GJB2 gene. Since ethnic difference may have an effect for the degree of hearing loss due to background genes, we aimed to search for confirmation of previously suggested genotype-phenotype correlation in GJB2 deafness in the Turkish population.
