Waardenburg syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by sensorineural deafness with pigmentary anomalies and defects of the neural crest cells transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion. Depending on the deformities caused by the disease some patients may need a multi-disciplinary approach while some may not need any treatment. Based on associated characteristics found and variable mutations there are four types of the syndrome. Here, we report a case of an 11-year-old male child who was found to have this disorder when a school survey was conducted at the school for deaf and dumb. It was also noted that there was generalized follicular hyperkeratosis, which could be a co-incidental finding.
