The average score of auditory performance improved steadily after the use of cochlear implant and continued over for 12 months.

In particular the score of Monosyllabic-Trochee-Polysyllabic word (MTP) was improved from 8.3% to 100% for 12 months. The results of this case suggested that auditory rehabilitation and cochlear implantation for a child with KID syndrome would be effective and important.
