Otosclerosis is a common condition that causes mild-to-severe hearing loss due to abnormal bone growth inside the ear. It affects millions of Americans each year and is thought to be hereditary. Women are most at risk for otosclerosis. The term itself is derived from “oto” (of the ear) and “sclerosis” (abnormal bone remodeling or hardening).
