I am trying to find out information about a hereditary disease that causes signs such as spots in the eyes and ears. After that organs start to fail and it can and has been fatal for my family. It is something that has killed many members of my dads side of the family but all those that knew that name have no passed on. My dad refused to be tested to find out if he is a carrier or not so as a mom I would like to find some information. My mom said all she remembers being mentioned is that it first starts as spots in the ears then spots in the eyes that are very noticable. Then they become very ill and organs started failing and by the age of 40-45 they were dead from complications. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
