What is albinism?

Published February 08. 2013 05:03PM

Albinism is a genetic condition where people are born without the usual pigment in their bodies.

Their bodies aren't able to make a normal amount of melanin, the chemical responsible for eye, skin, and hair color. So most people with albinism have very pale skin, hair, and eyes. Albinism can affect people of all races, and there are different kinds of albinism.
