Albinism is a skin pigment disorder that can affect people of all races and from all parts of the world. It is caused by a number of rare genetic disorders and can also cause abnormally low levels of melanin and complete loss of skin pigment. The hair and skin are usually pale white, and the eyes can be a pinkish or slightly bluish-gray color.

Because melanin protects the skin from the effects of the sun, people with albinism are very susceptible to sunburn or skin cancer.
