What is Albinism NGS panel Test?
Albinism NGS panel Test is a medical speciality that determines the cause and nature of diseases by examining and testing body tissues (EDTA blood or DNA). It is an Albinism NGS panel Test that screens of severe conditions.
Albinism is a rare group of genetic disorders that cause the skin, hair, or eyes to have little or no colour. Albinism is also associated with vision problems. Most forms of albinism don’t affect life span. Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, Chediak-Higashi syndrome, and Griscelli syndrome do affect life span, however.
People with albinism may have to limit their outdoor activities because their skin and eyes are sensitive to the sun. UV rays from the sun can cause skin cancer and vision loss in some people with albinism.
Symptoms of Albinism:
Skin Symptoms of Albinism: It often appears pale white, cream, or pink. But people with ocular albinism may have skin that’s brown or otherwise similar to the colour of their relatives without albinism.
Eye symptoms of albinism: Blue eyes are most common in people with albinism. But sometimes their iris, the coloured part of the eye, can lack so much pigment that they appear pink or reddish from the blood vessels.
Hair symptoms of albinism: Hair, eyelashes, and eyebrows could range from very white, yellow, or even reddish. As you get older, your hair may darken to blond or even light brown.
Types of Albinism:
Different gene defects characterize the numerous types of albinism. Types of albinism include:
Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA):
OCA affects the skin, hair, and eyes. There are several subtypes of OCA. OCA1 is due to a defect in the tyrosinase enzyme. OCA2 is less severe than OCA1. It’s due to a defect in the OCA2 gene that results in reduced melanin production.
OCA3 is a defect in the TYRP1 gene. It usually affects people with dark skin, mainly black South Africans. OCA4 is due to a defect in the SLC45A2 protein. It results in a minimal production of melanin and commonly appears in people of East Asian descent.
Ocular albinism is the result of a gene mutation on the X chromosome and occurs almost exclusively in males. This type of albinism only affects the eyes. People with this type have normal hair, skin, and eye colouring, but have no pigment in the retina.
This syndrome is a rare form of albinism that’s due to a defect in one of eight genes. It produces symptoms similar to OCA. The syndrome occurs with lung, bowel, and bleeding disorders.
Chediak-Higashi syndrome is another rare form of albinism that’s the result of a defect in the LYST gene. It produces symptoms similar to OCA, but may not affect all areas of the skin.
Griscelli syndrome is a sporadic genetic disorder. It’s due to a defect in one of three genes. There only have been 60 known cases worldwide since 1978. Griscelli syndrome usually results in death within the first decade of life.
Treatment for Albinism:
There’s no cure for albinism. However, treatment can relieve symptoms and prevent sun damage. Treatment may include:
- sunglasses to protect the eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays
- protective clothing and sunscreen to protect the skin from UV rays
- prescription eyeglasses to correct vision problems
- surgery on the muscles of the eyes to correct abnormal eye movements
