Like Mother Like Daughter...


A mother has passed on a unique 'birthmark' that turns her hair white to her daughter – who has become the fourth generation of her family with the striking trait.



Brianna Worthy, 23, from Ridgeland, South Carolina, and her 18-month-old daughter MilliAnna, were both born with a white patch at the front of their hair.

The distinctive trait is caused by poliosis, which creates a lack of pigment in the patch of hair and the skin around it.

Baby MilliAnna is the fourth generation of her family to have the distinctive mark, which is also visible on her grandmother, Jennifer, 41, and her great-grandmother, Jaonne, 59.

Adorable photos of the tot with her mum and grandma show the family's Cruella de Vil-esque look.




Brianna said: 'We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn't met her biological family.

'I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn't get it, so I didn't know if MilliAnna was going to, but once I had her and they laid her on my chest and I saw she had it I was so happy.'

Brianna admitted that the show-stopping feature can occasionally have its downsides.

She said: 'We definitely get stopped a lot while out and about on our daily routines.

'The majority of the time I welcome the polite comments and don't mind answering the many questions, but honestly, it can be overwhelming at times,

'When I'm in a rush and just trying to do what I need and keep going.'

Brianna hopes her daughter will embrace her uniqueness as she gets older.

She said: 'I had several names such as skunk that kids would try to insult me with as a child.

'Sometimes it would bother me when I was younger, but I grew to end up really loving it in my hair and was confident that it was my own unique signature look.

'I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to peoples mean comments at times.'

    3. Piebaldism. ..It is ..And it's autosomal dominant actually...poliosis on its own won't necessarily affect the skin as seen on the child's knees....

      If not for the white forlock,one would almost think the little girl had vitiligo

    4. Oreola, you just I set a trap and you fell inside and covered yourself.
      You have never heard the condition called Piebdalism until I wrote about white forelock. I knew a typical proud Nigerian feeling smart will come to make correction claiming to have known the condition existed.
      Let me school you, the hair alone is what was talked about here and that white discolouration of the hair alone is called a white forelock.
      There are certain conditions/syndromes associated with white forelock which might include Deafness, other hypopigmentation on the skin etc.
      Now you have rushed to Piebdalism. What if the child is deaf? So my darl, stick with the white forelock until you examine the child face to face and rule out other things that might comprise a syndrome befor you can beat your chest and give a definite DIAGNOSIS.
      It is better to be generally correct than specifically wrong. Even if she ends up having Piebdalism, that white hair still remains white forelock, if she ends up having the other syndrome associated with deafness, the white hair still REMAINS white forelock. That's because I can see the white hair, but I cannot test her auditory status. Stop this ITK, this condition is a very rare one and you only knew because you saw my comment on white forelock and went to google, then you saw the syndromes associated with white forelock then you think you can come here and pretend you have always known about it.
