    You might have jaundice, stemming from malaria, thalassemia, sickle cell anemia and glucose-6-phosphate-dehydrogenase deficiency.

    ...you may have what's known as KAYSER-FLEISCHER RINGS, which is caused by Wilson's disease- an abnormal accumulation of copper in the body.

    If you have a blue sclera (white part of the eye)...

    ... you may have a form of Osteogenesis Imperfecta, where your body doesn't make enough Type-I collagen, which can cause brittle bones, loose joints, protrusion of the eyes, and hearing problems in addition to the blue sclera.
