Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
albinism may be similar to two related syndromes (Hermansky-Pudlak and
Chediak-Higashi) and could lead to more widespread lysosome excretory
defects. These defects could lead to accumulation of some intracellular
material, leading to the gross discoloration of the kidney.
