I am glad I am not a piebald.

there are quite a few cases i've seen where someone has white patches in their hair, a little boy in my classes has one large one near the front. a man my husband is friends with has two of them. but i dont think that is piebaldism, or is a very mild case of it. i think, and i could be wrong, that the rest has to be there for piebald. the patches are pretty much in the same place on every picture i have seen, person or animal, the chest/abdomine area and the front of the hair. if anyone knows if these other patches of white are piebald or something else, just some stray lack of pigment, i'd be interested to know.

This picture is of a case that has been linked to a specific mutation in the "Kit" gene (I think that was the name, I don't have the book with me right now)...both the mouse and the baby have that same mutation, hence the similarity in the pattern of the marks...I'm not sure what contributes to people having small/medium patches in "random" places on their bodies, but I do believe that it's a separate phenomenon. I don't think people in that case have any problems with the side effects associated with the Kit gene gut/ear malformations, sterility, etc...
