White albino

Autosomal recessive condition in which there is deficiency of tyrosinase as a result of tyrosinase gene defect affecting type 1 (tyrosinase gene) or type II ( P gene). The gene catalyses the conversion of tyrosine to melanin. The condition ranges from completely oculocutaneous albinism to incomplete albinism in which there may be melanin in the eye and part of the skin. The white albino may not be too different from the caucasian while the black looks totally different and more caucasian.
