Title: Case Reports- Waardenburg syndrome type 2 in an African patient
Authors: Otman, S.G.H.
Abdelhamid, N.I.
Keywords: Waardenburg syndrome type 2, White forelock, Bilateral iris hypochromia
Issue Date: 31-Dec-2005
Publisher: Medknow Publications on behalf of The Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists (IADVL)
Citation: Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology (ISSN: 0378-6323) Vol 71 Num 6
Abstract: A thirty six year-old African man, born in the Southern part of Libya, presented with congenital deafness and white forelock, variable-sized hypopigmented, depigmented patches and hyperpigmented islands within the areas of hypomelanosis affecting the upper parts of the trunk, both arms and forearms. The nasal root was hypertrophied, but there was a lack of lateral displacement of medial canthi. We report this case of Waardenburg syndrome type 2 (WS 2). As no treatment is available for patients with WS 2, prompt diagnosis and referral to a hearing specialist are crucial for the normal development of patients affected with this condition.
