Albinism comprises a group of congenital hypopigmentary diseases that  result from a defect in production of pigment due to dysfunction of  melanocytes in the skin, eyes, and/or ears. The umbrella of albinism  includes oculocutaneous albinism (4 types), ocular albinism,  Chediak-Higashi syndrome, Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, and Griscelli  syndrome. Newborns present with generalized complete or partial loss in  pigmentation of skin and hair. The basis for these diseases is mutations  in the genes that regulate the multistep process of melanin synthesis,  distribution of pigment by the melanocyte, and/or melanosome biogenesis.  An infant with oculocutaneous albinism type 1 is shown with  hypomelanotic skin, white hair, and pink irides.
