Ugandan Boy Becomes Internet Sensation Because Of His Unique Birthmarks

A boy who hails from Uganda has become an internet sensation and it’s all thanks to his skin pigmentation. According to reports accompanied with his photos, his mother abandoned him with his grandma because of his condition.

The little boy is said to have “Waardenburg Syndrome” and not witchcraft as some people have poised him to be. He also can’t speak.

Waardenburg syndrome is a group of genetic conditions that can cause hearing loss and changes in coloring (pigmentation) of the hair, skin, and eyes. Although most people with Waardenburg syndrome have normal hearing, moderate to profound hearing loss can occur in one or both ears.
