The possible hereditary indicated differences in the ascending family tree was investigated in children with severe recessive perceptively impaired hearing, their parents, and healthy controls, using qualitative analysis of dermatoglyphics of the digito-palmar complex. The c2 test was performed and biological distance was investigated by means according to Hiernaux Dg methods, and presented using Ward’s method for the examined groups. The results show that the healthy control group differs from the groups of boys and girls with impaired hearing and also from their fathers mostly in palmar variables. The mothers were biologically more distant from the examined groups of patients, and more similar to the control group of randomly selected healthy female controls. The results indicate polygenic inheritance of sporadic sensoneurial hearing loss.
