Elejalde syndrome
Elejalde syndrome is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner

Elejalde syndrome or neuroectodermal melanolysosomal disease[1] is an extremely rare autosomal recessive syndrome (only around 10 cases known) consisting of moderate pigment dilution, profound central nervous system dysfunction, no immune defects, and hair with a metallic silvery sheen.[2][3] The changes to hair and skin pigmentation are associated with altered melanosome trafficking.[3]

It is associated with MYO5A.[citation needed]
