Albinism (from Latin albus, "white") is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes. Albinism results from inheritance of recessive gene alleles and is known to affect all vertebrates, including humans. An organism with complete absence of melanin is called an albino and an organism with only a diminished amount of melanin is described as albinoid.
