Albinism Deficiency of Tyrosinase Enzyme. @Dr. Mahmud Patel sir Thanks.

All Answers

Albinism Also called achromasia. A group of inherited disorders characterised by little or no melanin production. This condition increases the risk of skin cancer. Albinism is a rare, non-contagious, genetically inherited condition which occurs worldwide regardless of ethnicity or gender. It most commonly results in the lack of melanin pigment in the hair, skin and eyes (oculocutaneous albinism), causing vulnerability to sun exposure. This means a child has to inherit two copies of the faulty gene (one from each parent) to have the condition. If both parents carry the gene, there's a 1 in 4 chance that their child will have albinism and a 1 in 2 chance that their child will be a carrier. Carriers don't have albinism but can pass on the faulty gene.
