The authors discuss the case of a patient suffering from an auditory-pigmentary syndrome. The patient in whom the Waardenburg syndrome had never been diagnosed before was observed because of another disease, which quite frequently causes hearing loss in childhood. In a short review of the literature, the authors describe the other components of the syndrome and the recent information about the genetic background of the disease.
