Beautiful pictures attach two Turkish brothers born with two completely different colored eyes due to a rare condition.

Mehmet and Kerem Selman, 11 and four years old, each have a blue right eye and a brown left eye due to a condition known as heterochromia.

The brothers, from Bursa in Turkey, have & # 39; complete heterochromia & # 39; – meaning that their eyes are completely different in two colors – instead of central or partial heterochromia, which would make two colors together in one iris.

Suat Selman, the father of Mehmet and Kerem, told it Aksam he brought his eldest son to the doctor after noticing the difference in his eye color and was told that Mehmet might have difficulty with his vision & # 39; in the blue eye & # 39;

Very few people have the condition, which is much more common in animals, and more often than not it is the result of a genetic color defect inherited from parents.

If the condition develops later in life, it is probably due to eye trauma, glaucoma or certain cancers, including melanoma or neuroblastoma.

Most cases of heterochromia occur sporadically, but it can be the result of a congenital syndrome such as Waardenburg syndrome and Sturge-Weber syndrome
