Other namesWarburg-Thomsen syndrome[1]

Yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome is a condition caused by a mutation on the SRY-related HMG-box gene 10[2] (not SOX10).[3]

It was characterized in 1990,[4] after being seen in two siblings from Yemen who presented with a "hitherto undescribed association of microcornea, colobomata of the iris and choroidea, nystagmus, severe early hearing loss, and patchy hypo- and hyperpigmentation."[1] Some sources affirm SOX10 involvement.[5][6]
