  • Pigmentation is a polygenic trait determined primarily by the amount and type of pigments [Yamaguchi et al., 2007. [...] Key Method The 6-year-old boy was ascertained due to nystagmus at age of 2 months. Albinism was later questioned due to deficient vision, light hair, light skin color and foveal hypoplasia. The sister was evaluated at 3 years due to exotropia. She also has significant hypopigmentation, blonde hair, brown irides with no history of nystagmus, foveal hypoplasia or decreased vision.
