KEGG   DISEASE: Lattice corneal dystrophies
Entry
H00956                      Disease                                
Name
Lattice corneal dystrophies
  Subgroup
Amyloidosis, Finnish type [DS:H02322]
Description
Lattice corneal dystrophy (LCD), the most common of the stromal cornea dystrophies, is an autosomal dominant dystrophy with variable expression. Clinical findings include the presence of a linear network of subepithelial opacities (lattice lines). LCD associated with the mutations in the TGFBI gene has been reported.
