Waardenburg syndrome Affects One In 40,000 People, And It Gives People Different Colored Eyes

The symptoms of many illnesses are often easy to recognize: fever, nausea, coughing and aches are all clear suggestions that there’s something wrong with your body, after all. There are some conditions, however, that are tougher to diagnose – not least because the warning signs appear to be completely benign.

In fact, something as desirable as beautiful blue eyes can be an indicator of a particular genetic mutation. But while that may sound fine by itself, the implications of living with this particular syndrome can actually be very serious indeed. That’s because its symptoms extend beyond just having ocean-colored eyes.
