Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients with oculocutaneous albinism are more prone to sun-induced damage due to the lack of melanin. Actinic cheilitis is a potentially malignant disorder that occurs due to chronic UV-B radiation to the vermillion region of the lip, a region that is already at risk due to its morphology. A case of actinic cheilitis in a patient with oculocutaneous albinism is presented with a literature review.
