Woman unable to hear men’s voices due to rare condition, report says

FOX News – A woman in China was as of late diagnosed with a rare hearing-misfortune condition that keeps her from hearing men’s voices.

The woman, recognized just as Chen, as of late woke up one morning and was not able hear her boyfriend’s voice, the Daily Mail revealed. The Xiamen resident at that point hurried to the Qianpu Hospital trusting doctors there would be able to help her.

Chen was in this way diagnosed by an ear, nose and throat specialist with a condition called reverse-slope hearing loss, or RSHL. And it’s rare: “for every 12,000 cases of hearing loss, only one person has RSHL.” In the U.S. and Canada, specifically, the condition affects roughly 3,000 people.

Those with the condition typically have trouble hearing low-frequency sounds.

“She was able to hear me when I spoke to her, but when a young male patient walked in, she couldn’t hear him at all,” Lin Xiaoqing, the doctor who treated Chen, said, according to the Daily Mail.
