Abstract

Albinism is associated with neural anomalies including foveal hypoplasia and aberrant optic pathway projection that result in a variety of oculomotor instability. We present a 38-years-old man with oculocutaneous albinism who had horizontal jerk-type nystagmus, which showed a reverse in direction by any extraneous light stimulation which was documented by electronystagmogram. The mechanism of the nystagmus in this case is uncertain. These findings in albinism have not been reported previously, to our knowledge, and suggest a defect in the visual pathway system.
