Modern day medical researchers (1993) have described patients with a condition or form of CH where the mutation has been tracked to the long arm of the X chromosome. This condition was described as “Ambras Syndrome”.
These photographs were actually postcards, and are the earliest photo-documents of a CH patient.
The people who have this condition have hair placement more typical of mammals in general, and less typical of the human hair placement.
The gene was discovered in 1995, and is the first example of a gene that may be involved in the regulation of human hair growth to certain regions of the body.
