Albinism–deafness syndrome is inherited in an X-linked recessive manner

Albinism–deafness syndrome is a condition characterized by congenital neural deafness and a severe or extreme piebald-like phenotype with extensive areas of hypopigmentation.[1]

A locus at Xq26.3-q27.I has been suggested.[2]

It has been suggested that it is a form of Waardenburg syndrome type II.[3]
