Waardenburg’s syndrome is transmitted in an autosomal-dominant fashion and consists of a constellation of findings, including
(1) dystopia canthorum (lateral displacement of the medial canthi)
(2) broad nasal root
(3) confluence of the medial portions of the eyebrows
(4) partial or total heterochromia iridis
(5) a white forelock
(6) Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL)
There is extreme variability in the expression of this disorder, and the hearing loss can vary from profound to none at all. The hearing loss can be unilateral or bilateral, and can be associated with vestibular abnormalities.
