Abstract

OMAR, Erick Dancuart; OLIVEIRA, Zilda Najjar Prado de  and  MACHADO-RIVITTI, Maria Cecília. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2007, vol.82, n.2, pp. 186-189. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962007000200012.

Waardenburg syndrome is a dominant autosomal condition in which alterations of pigmentation (hypochromia or achromia of the skin and hair, heterochromia of the iris) can be associated with deafness, lateral displacement of the inner canthi of the eyes and occasionally bowel or skeletal malformations. We report a case of Waardenburg syndrome type 2B, present the classification of the disease with diagnostic criteria and discuss differential diagnosis, which should include vitiligo, piebaldism and different forms of albinism.

Keywords : Albinism; Piebaldism; Vitiligo; Waardenburg syndrome.
