Diseases

Heterochromia Iridis

A difference in color between the iris of one eye and the iris of the other eye. A person with one brown eye and one blue eye has heterochromia iridis. It is a rare inherited genetic disorder in which the body cannot process the amino acids phenylalanine and tyrosine, which occur in protein.

SYMPTOMS

  • Dark spots in the sclera (white) of your eyes.
  • Thickened and darkened cartilage in your ears.
  • Blue speckled discoloration of your skin, particularly around sweat glands.
  • Dark-colored sweat or sweat stains.
  • Black earwax.
  • Kidney stones and prostate stones.

CAUSES

Heterochromia iridis  is caused by a mutation on your homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase (hgd) gene. It's an autosomally recessive condition. This means that both of your parents must have the gene in order to pass the condition on to you. Alkaptonuria is a rare disease.
