Abstract

Albinism is a congenital disorder characterized by complete or partial absence of pigments in the skin, eyes,and hair due to the absence or defective melanin production. As a result of that, there will be disruption seen in auditory pathways along with other areas. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to highlight the underlying auditory neural deficits seen in albinism and discuss the role of audiologist in these cases.
