Bizarre Ear Condition Makes Woman Unable to Hear Men's Voices

According to the Daily Mail, the woman is only being identified as Ms. Chen. The night before she was unable to hear her boyfriend's voice, Chen also said she felt nauseous and had ringing in her ears.

A woman in China was recently diagnosed with a rare hearing-loss condition that prevents her from hearing men's voices.

But Dr Xiaoqing said Chen may have developed the condition duo to fatigue and stress after Chen said she'd been getting stressed and losing sleep over working too much.

While the scenario sounds like a bizarro version of What Women Want, Chen is actually unable to hear deeper tones due to a rare condition called "reverse-slope hearing loss".

The rare condition is present in almost 13,000 hearing loss patients, and stress can be a factor. She expects Chen to make a full recovery, a fate that some people may argue is more of a curse.

Reverse-sloping hearing loss is a form of sensorineural hearing loss.

Anyone who suffers from low-frequency hearing loss, generally, can't hear noises that have a frequency of 2,000 Hz or below.

High-frequency hearing loss is much more common and generally means people struggle to, or can't hear the voices of women and children.

Those with the condition typically have trouble hearing low-frequency sounds. In this condition, the plot of the audiogram runs from the upper-left-hand corner of the graph and travels downwards like a ski-slope. This can be caused by general anesthetic, a perilymphatic fistula (an abnormal opening in the ear), and intracranial hypertension, caused by pressure in the central nervous system. Autoimmune disorders that affect the inner ear - which are thought to occur in about 1 percent of the US population - may also be a cause of RSHL, Clark said.

It has been linked to genetics and can be triggered by certain diseases (for example, Ménière's disease) and viral infections.
