Thanks for the query. Genetic skin diseases are known to run in families. You should consult a Dermatologist for proper diagnosis. Once it's confirmed, then depending on type of albinism, it could be predicted with some accuracy about inheritance in future pregnancies. Genetic tests adds to the weightage of such predictions. Various locations of the gene can be affected and also depends on ethnicity and caste. Hope it helps. Dr MK Agarwala New Delhi
