Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss and Inborn Pigmentary Disorders: First Report of Multilocus Syndrome in Piebaldism.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2019 Jul 7;55(7). Epub 2019 Jul 7.

Department of Health Sciences, Amedeo Avogadro University of Eastern Piedmont, 28100 Novara, Italy.

Congenital sensorineural hearing loss may occur in association with inborn pigmentary defects of the iris, hair, and skin. These conditions, named auditory-pigmentary disorders (APDs), represent extremely heterogeneous hereditary diseases, including Waardenburg syndromes, oculocutaneous albinism, Tietz syndrome, and piebaldism. APDs are part of the neurocristopathies, a group of congenital multisystem disorders caused by an altered development of the neural crest cells, multipotent progenitors of a wide variety of different lineages, including those differentiating into peripheral nervous system glial cells and melanocytes.

Striking contiguous depigmentation across the lower limbs in piebaldism and its implications for understanding melanocytic migration and development.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Jul 14;36(4):511-513. Epub 2019 Apr 14.

University of California, San Francisco, California.

Piebaldism is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of pigmentation that is characterized by variable patches of depigmentation on the face, chest, abdomen, and extremities. We describe two cases of piebaldism, in whom the remarkable asymmetric distribution of the depigmented patches in a connected, contiguous pattern across the legs provides embryologic insights. This finding is not explained by the traditional theory that melanocytic migration only originates in the neural crest and progresses unilaterally down each leg. Read More

Orthodontics and Dentofacial Deformities, Centre for Dental Education and Research, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Griscelli syndrome (GS) is an autosomal-recessive disorder of the vesicle transport and membrane trafficking system first identified by Griscelli et al in 1978. The three types of GS have specific genetic defects and systemic manifestations apart from classic partial pigmentary dilution, resulting in hypopigmentation of skin and silvery hair. GS-II occurs due to a defect in the Rab27a gene and is characterized by primary immune deficiency along with accelerated phases of a hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) crisis. Read More

Cellular and ultrastructural characterization of the grey-morph phenotype in southern right whales (Eubalaena australis).

PLoS One 2017 7;12(2):e0171449. Epub 2017 Feb 7.

Huntsman Cancer Institute, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States of America.

Southern right whales (SRWs, Eubalena australis) are polymorphic for an X-linked pigmentation pattern known as grey morphism. Most SRWs have completely black skin with white patches on their bellies and occasionally on their backs; these patches remain white as the whale ages. Grey morphs (previously referred to as partial albinos) appear mostly white at birth, with a splattering of rounded black marks; but as the whales age, the white skin gradually changes to a brownish grey color.
