Deficiency of ________ results in skin Lesions and Albinism.

Deficiency of Melanin results in skin Lesions and Albinism.

What is Albinism?

Albinism is an inherited disease characterized by a substantially lower rate of melanin production. Melanin is the pigment responsible for the colour of the skin, hair, and eyes. People with albinism often have lighter coloured skin and hair than the other members of their family or ethnic group. Albinism results from a mutation in one of several genes.

Symptoms

The primary symptoms of albinism can affect the skin, hair, eye colour, and vision.

After exposure to the sun, some people with albinism might develop:

  • freckles
  • moles, usually pink due to the reduced quantities of pigment
  • lentigines, large freckle-like spots

Hair colour will change to brown, and eye colour may change to brown or blue.
