Woman With Rare Condition Can't Hear Men's Voices

The diagnosis was a type of hearing loss which means she can't hear lower frequencies

Chen was also up vomiting the night before and started to notice a ringing in her ear then, so she knew something serious was going on.

At the hospital, Chen was treated by Dr. Lin Xiaoqing - a woman - who noted that while Chen was able to hear Xiaoqing's voice, she couldn't hear the voice of a nearby male patient "at all", according to Newsweek.

Chen was subsequently diagnosed by an ear, nose and throat specialist with a condition called reverse-slope hearing loss, or RSHL.

While Ms. Chen was able to hear every word a female ENT said during her appointment, she was unable to pick up on the voice of a young male patient at the hospital, Dr. Xiaoqing said.

Doctors believe that Ms. Chen's particular condition may have been brought on by stress and a severe lack of sleep.

Chen is now receiving treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.

Bernie Sanders Apologizes to Women Who Were Allegedly Harassed During His Campaign
He projected more contrition on Thursday, saying that "our standards, our procedures, our safeguards, were clearly inadequate". Sanders does not stand accused of harassing staffers himself, but has been criticized for poorly handling the complaints.

Patients who suffer from RSHL can hear and women clearly, but not men. Those with RSHL generally have issues hearing low-frequency sounds; she can only hear high-frequency sounds. Sufferers may have symptoms like finding it hard to understand people on the phone, due to the lower frequency, and being unable to hear things like the hum of a refrigerator.

A woman in China has been diagnosed with a type of rare hearing loss condition.

Low frequency hearing loss can be very risky for people as it can affect their ability to hear things like the low hum of an oncoming auto.

This may not be a condition that most of us are familiar with.

RSHL is the opposite, hence its name, reverse-slope hearing loss. And while that might seem enviable to some, the hearing loss could carry serious medical repercussions. A change in the pressure of the fluid in the inner ear has also been known to be a trigger. People who experience sudden and unexplained hearing loss should see a specialist as soon as possible.

According to the World Health Organization, some 466 million people across the world are affected by some form of disabling hearing loss.
