A 15-year-old Arab boy presented with congenital deafness, heterochromia iridis (right, brown; left, blue), poliosis (white forelock), with an area of leukoderma beneath the forelock, broad nasal root, and lateral displacement of the medial canthi (Fig. 1). Further investigation revealed that one of his siblings was similarly affected. The child was diagnosed with Waardenburg syndrome. As the child grew older, the leukodermic patch on the scalp became more evident, together with confluence of the eyebrows (synophrys).
