Twelve patients with pili torti and sensorineural hearing loss have been described since 1965. We present two new families with this combination of symptoms, and a restudy of a third family. The genetic aspects are discussed. Tentatively it is concluded that pili torti is an autosomal dominant with a low penetrance of a pleiotropic manifestation of sensorineural hearing loss.
