A 9-year-old child with Klippel-Feil syndrome was found to have a bilateral conductive hearing loss. Abnormalities of both middle ears were found. We present a critical review of the literature concerning the association of hearing loss and the Klippel-Feil syndrome and a discussion of the importance of pediatric, orthopedic, otologic, and audiologic examinations.
