We report a case of Waardenburg Syndrome (WS) who underwent simultaneous bilateral cochlear implantation and the evolution of auditory performance over a 5 year follow-up. Examination revealed a white forelock with iris heterochromia and confluent eyebrows (synophoris). Audiometric evaluation revealed bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss. High resolution tomography of temporal bone showed normal inner ear anatomy and subsequently child underwent bilateral cochlear implantation which was followed by regular postoperative rehabilitation and speech therapy.
