About this section

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Waardenburg syndrome type 2 is an inherited condition that can cause hearing loss and changes in coloring (pigmentation) of the hair, skin, and eyes. about 50 percent of those with waardenburg syndrome type 2 have a hearing impairment or are deaf.  type 2 is one the most common forms of waardenburg syndrome, along with type 1. waardenburg syndrome type 2 may be caused by mutations in the mitf and snai2 genes. this condition is usually inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion, but can sometimes be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. last updated: 12/9/2011

MalaCards based summary: Waardenburg Syndrome Type 2, also known as ws type 2, is related to ocular albinism and microphthalmia. An important gene associated with Waardenburg Syndrome Type 2 is SOX10 (SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 10), and among its related pathways are Transcription factors in neurogenesis and Regulation of retinoblastoma protein. The compounds kojic acid and hmba have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are limbs/digits/tail and no phenotypic analysis.
