Twenty-four patients were studied for Klein-Waardenburg syndrome, a congenital disorder of deafness, eye changes, and localized hypomelanosis. Two deaf patients with oculocutaneous albinism were studied and patients previously reported with "albinoidism" and Klein-Waardenburg syndrome were reexamined. Piebaldness with deafness alone may also be an associated disorder.
