hi,i'm a undergraduate dental student and i saw a patient with albinism,he don't have any medical problems,it was so obvious on his skin colore, his hair is so thin but the colore is almost normal brown.
his nails is so fragile,and he has hypodontia,severe hypodontia,he has only 3 molars 2 maxillary and one mandibular and the upper canines but when i saw him he had only the 3 molars cause as he told me that the canines was too odd so he extract them.
he attend to the dental clinic cause he was refered from the prosthodontic department to do alveoplasty to make denture.its his 17th denture ,he start wearing dentures at 12 years old and unfortunatly he cant afford for implants..
what i want to ask about is it normal for an albinism patient to have this much of missing teeth,i mean could it be a usual symptom,i read about albinism and its symptoms but i didnt find that much about hypodontia or it could be related to other condition.
