A mode of inheritance that is observed for traits related to a gene encoded on one of the autosomes (i.e., the human chromosomes 1-22) in which a trait manifests in individuals with two pathogenic alleles, either homozygotes (two copies of the same mutant allele) or compound heterozygotes (whereby each copy of a gene has a distinct mutant allele).
 
Gene (location): SLITRK6 (13q31.1)

Disease characteristics

Excerpted from the GeneReview: Deafness and Myopia Syndrome
Deafness and myopia (DFNMYP) syndrome is characterized by bilateral, congenital or prelingual deafness (sensorineural hearing loss or auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder) and high myopia (>-6 diopters). In individuals with a molecularly confirmed diagnosis reported to date, hearing loss was progressive and severity ranged from moderate to profound. Vestibular testing was normal. Myopia was diagnosed at infancy or early childhood. [from GeneReviews]

Additional description

From MedlinePlus Genetics
Deafness and myopia syndrome is a disorder that causes problems with both hearing and vision. People with this disorder have moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears that may worsen over time. The hearing loss may be described as sensorineural, meaning that it is related to changes in the inner ear, or it may be caused by auditory neuropathy, which is a problem with the transmission of sound (auditory) signals from the inner ear to the brain. The hearing loss is either present at birth (congenital) or begins in infancy, before the child learns to speak (prelingual).

Affected individuals also have severe nearsightedness (high myopia). These individuals are able to see nearby objects clearly, but objects that are farther away appear blurry. The myopia is usually diagnosed by early childhood.  https://medlineplus.gov/genetics/condition/deafness-and-myopia-syndrome
