Waardenburg Syndrome

Dark skin with blue eyes

Haitian girl with beautiful blue eyes. Her eyes are most likely the result of Waardenburg Syndrome type 2. Note the bit of white hair and bit of white eyebrow. Waardenburg Syndrome Type 2 is caused by a MITF Gene mutation. I found this image on the internet and was unable to determine copyright.
