Oculocerebral Hypopigmentation Syndrome

Oculo cerebral Syndrome with Hypopigmentation is a rare inherited syndrome whose manifestations include lack of color on the skin and eyes (hypopigmentation) and impaired functioning of the eyes and brain due to anomalies that affect the central nervous system. This disorder is usually associated with other physical and psychological abnormalities, including delayed neuro psychomotor development, intellectual deficit, growth deficiency, and anemia. Some of these symptoms are present since birth (with a tendency to progress), and others might develop later in life. No treatment is available for this syndrome. However, it is possible to reduce the gravity of some of the symptoms and increase well-being with the application of specific interventions.
