NIH Rare Diseases:44 Oculocutaneous albinism type 2 is a genetic condition that affects the coloring (pigmentation) of the skin, hair, and eyes. affected individuals typically have very fair skin and white or light-colored hair. long-term sun exposure greatly increases the risk of skin damage and skin cancers, including an aggressive form of skin cancer called melanoma, in people with this condition. this condition also reduces pigmentation of the colored part of the eye (the iris) and the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (the retina). people with this condition usually have vision problems such as reduced sharpness; nystagmus and strabismus; and increased sensitivity to light (photophobia). this condition is caused by mutations in the oca2 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. last updated: 9/19/2011

MalaCards: Oculocutaneous Albinism Type 2, also known as OCA2, is related to albinism, brown oculocutaneous and albinism, and has symptoms including iris albinism/ocular albinism, melanoma and skin/cutaneous neoplasm/tumor/carcinoma/cancer (excluding melanoma). An important gene associated with Oculocutaneous Albinism Type 2 is OCA2 (oculocutaneous albinism II), and among its related pathways is Basal cell carcinoma. The compounds phaeomelanin and eumelanin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and retina, and related mouse phenotypes are pigmentation and integument.
