User: Which of the following BEST describes a disease such as deafness? Question 1 answers Acquired disease Congenital disease Either a congenital or acquired disease Neither a congenital nor acquired disease

Weegy: Either a congenital or acquired disease Hearing loss, or deafness, can be present at birth (congenital), or become evident later in life (acquired). [ The distinction between acquired and congenital deafness specifies only the time that the deafness appears. It does not specify whether the cause of the deafness is genetic (inherited). Acquired deafness may or may not be genetic. For example, it may be a manifestation of a delayed-onset form of genetic deafness. Alternatively, acquired deafness may be due to damage to the ear due to noise or from other conditions. Congenital deafness similarly may or may not be genetic. For example, it may be associated with a white forelock, and be caused by a genetic disease called Waardenburg syndrome. In fact, more than half of congenital hearing loss is inherited. Alternatively, congenital deafness may be due to a condition or infection to which the mother was exposed during pregnancy, such as the rubella virus. ]
