Answer

Audiology is indicated in patients with Turner syndrome.

Infants diagnosed at birth should have a hearing assessment in the nursery. Otherwise, formal hearing assessment is recommended at age 1 year and before entering school. Formal re-evaluation every 5 years has been recommended.

More frequent testing is needed in children with repeated otitis media.

Adults should also have a hearing evaluation at least once with further testing later if hearing loss is suspected.
