Chen explained to the doctors that she experienced nausea and ringing in her ears the night before. The next morning, she woke up and realized she could not hear her boyfriend's voice, at which point she went to the hospital.

Dr. Lin Xiaoqing, a specialist, took Chen's treatment into her own hands.

According to doctor, Chen could hear everything but can't hear the voice of a young men patient who walked into the room.

She was diagnosed with a type of hearing loss that left her unable to understand low-pitched sounds, a.k.a. male voices. Dr. Xiaoqing believes Chen developed the condition because of stress and a severe lack of sleep. She expects Chen to experience a full recovery.

And most surprising thing was that she could hear the voice of women, but not that of men.

Reverse-slope hearing loss (RSHL) affects mainly the lower frequencies and genetic is one of its main causes. And while that might seem enviable to some, the hearing loss could carry serious medical repercussions.

The good news is that when RSHL is detected quickly, chances are good that the hearing loss can be reversed, Kraskin said.

This may not be a condition that most of us are familiar with. Those with RSHL generally have issues hearing low-frequency sounds; she can only hear high-frequency sounds. It's not just male voices they struggle with but any particularly low sound, including voices over the phone, the hum of a auto, and thunder. This can be caused by general anesthetic, a perilymphatic fistula (an abnormal opening in the ear), and intracranial hypertension, caused by pressure in the central nervous system.

According to the World Health Organization, around 466 million people across the world are affected by some kind of hearing loss. By 2050, that figure is expected to hit over 900 million.

Anyone who suffers from low frequency hearing loss, generally, can't hear noises that have a frequency of 2,000 Hz or below.
