Green List (high evidence)

Green rating appropriate as discussed with Anna de Burca: Associated with Waardenburg syndrome, which can present with changes in skin pigmentation. EDN3 is Green on the 'Hearing loss' panel, with a review from Maria Bitner-Glindzicz who records that 'Good evidence for causing Waardenburg syndrome (rare cause) and the diagnosis could be missed so put on green list'.
