A family is described showing deafness in three consecutive generations. Hirschsprung's disease was present in at least two of the affected patients and a history of bowel dysfunction was present in the third. The association of the two disorders in this family may be due to a single autosomal dominant gene and in this regard differs from previously reported isolated patients with Hirschsprung's disease and deafness.
