Disease relevance of OASD

  • X-linked ocular albinism with late-onset sensorineural deafness (OASD) is an autonomous disorder that poses significant clinical problems, causing affected individuals to be blind and deaf by early middle age [1].

High impact information on OASD

  • In the present report, a large South African family with OASD was investigated at the molecular level and tight linkage was found to the DXS452 locus at Xp22.3 using 25 informative meioses, with a maximum lod score of 7.1 at a recombination fraction of 0.00 [1].
  • We have investigated a large Afrikaner kindred in which seven males had ocular albinism and late-onset sensorineural deafness (OASD) [2].
