Re: Rainbow hair

Dear Prof

''Rainbow hair'' is just my own description : )

I am thinking of mosaicism as tortoise shell cats have x-chromosome mosaicism which leads to their multicolored fur. Ever since my middle son''s birth I have had a nagging feeling that he has a chromosomal or gene defect or anomalie. We have contacted the geneticist at Tygerberg, and she will evaluate him, but its a big step and can add more worry that resolution. Luckily at least he certainly does not have Waardenburg.

Again thank you very much for always replying kindly to my questions.
