Freebase

  1. Poliosis

    Poliosis is the decrease or absence of melanin in head hair, eyebrows, or eyelashes. It can give rise to a "Mallen Streak" that can be hereditary. Catherine Cookson wrote a novel and later a TV series called The Mallen Streak, where a family had the condition. Sports presenter Dickie Davies was famous for this feature. People with Waardenburg syndrome usually present this symptom, as do 60% of patients with tuberous sclerosis. This condition can cause white patches on the hair. Most people confuse these white patches as simple birth marks.
