Tietz syndrome is a condition characterized by deafness and albinism.

It is due to a mutation in chromosome 3, possibly in the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor.

Tietz syndrome is not to be confused with Tietze's syndrome, which is a benign inflammation of the ligaments connecting to the sternum or ribs.
