  • Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) types 1, 2, 3, and 4 (OMIM 203100, 203200, 203290, 611409) are characterized as hypopigmentation of eyes, skin, and hair, and are generally considered autosomal recessive disorders [Spritz et al., 1997; Grønskov et al., 2007]. Recently, we have provided evidence suggesting a new mechanism for the phenotype of OCAs [Chiang et al., 2008a,b,c]. We hypothesize that the clinical spectrum of OCA depends on the pigmentation threshold of an affected individual: in darker… CONTINUE READING
