Answer

Other considerations include postinflammatory hypopigmentation, poliosis, and leukemia. [19]

The diagnosis of Chédiak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) should be considered in individuals with pigment dilution defects of the hair, skin, or eyes; congenital or transient neutropenia; immunodeficiency; and otherwise unexplained neurologic abnormalities or neurodegeneration.
