Albinism and Hypo-Pigmentosa

What is Albinism?

People with albinism have little or no pigment in the eyes, skin, and hair (or in some cases in the eyes alone). They have inherited from their parents an altered copy of a genes that do not allow the body to make the usual amounts of a pigment called melanin.
