NIH Rare Diseases:43 Epithelial basement membrane corneal dystrophy is a condition where the epithelium of the cornea (the outermost region of the cornea) loses its normal clarity due to a buildup of cloudy material. it gets its name from the unusual appearance of the cornea during an eye exam. this dystrophy occurs when the epithelium's basement membrane develops abnormally, causing the epithelial cells to not properly adhere to it. this leads to recurrent epithelial erosions, which can cause blurred vision and severe pain. this condition is usually not inherited. however, families with autosomal dominant inheritance and mutations in the tgfbi gene have been identified. last updated: 7/8/2014

MalaCards: Epithelial Basement Membrane Corneal Dystrophy, also known as corneal dystrophy, epithelial basement membrane, is related to corneal dystrophy and meesmann corneal dystrophy. An important gene associated with Epithelial Basement Membrane Corneal Dystrophy is TGFBI (transforming growth factor, beta-induced, 68kDa). Affiliated tissues include eye.
