    It could be a middle ear issue, like otitis media. This causes a moderate hearing loss, but it usually clears up when the ear infection goes away.

    I am guessing that you may be deaf just because I know deaf people and that is how they write questions. If it runs in your family there may be a good chance that your child is in fact hard of hearing. In order for him to have a 50-55 decibel loss -there is either a problem with his inner ear or middle ear (where there could be fluid). ABR test is almost always accurate however if the baby is making a lot of noise or is not sleeping, this can effect the results. I would get a second opinion from another audiologist and also have them do DPOAEs and tympanometry to see if all the results coincide. I would be sure to sleep deprive my baby and then feed them right before test to ensure they are sleeping or results will be skewed. Good luck.
