Alström Syndrome is an ultra rare, recessively inherited genetic disorder, which means that both parents will carry the gene although probably be unaffected themselves. It can affect many aspects of health including vision and hearing. Alström Syndrome UK, the organisation which supports families affected by the condition, has produced a short animation to raise awareness, which you can watch here.
