Albinism Resources Guide

Albinism refers to a group of inherited conditions that affect about one person in 17,000. The bodies of people with albinism do not produce the usual amounts of a pigment known as malanin, regardless of their race or ethnicity. As a result, individuals with albinism have little or no pigment in their eyes, skin, or hair. For more information, check these sites.
