  • Albinism Health Risk

    1421 Words  | 6 Pages

    Why is Albinism a health risk? Albinism is a non-contagious, inherited genetic condition that is present at birth. In most cases, albinism appears to be recessive, meaning that for a child to be born with the condition, the child inherits an abnormal gene from each parent. When neither of the parents have albinism but both parents carry the defective gene, it is likely that they have a one in four chance that their child will have albinism (1). Albinism is caused by the mutations in the genes
