Summaries for Fuchs' Endothelial Dystrophy

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (fecd) is an eye disease. it affects the thin layer of cells that line the back part of the cornea. this layer is called the endothelium. the disease occurs when these cells slowly start to die off. the cells help pump excess fluid out of the cornea. as more and more cells are lost, fluid begins to build up in the cornea, causing swelling and a cloudy cornea. there are several forms of the disease according to the age of onset of the symptoms and the cause. the early-onset form is very rare and is known as fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 1 (or early-onset fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy) and it is caused by a change (mutation) in the col8a2 gene. late-onset fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophies are common and include:fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 2 (caused by a mutation in an unknown gene located in chromosome13) fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 3 (may be caused by tcf4 gene mutations) fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 4 (caused by a mutation in the slc4a11 gene) fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 5 (caused by a mutation in an unknown gene located in chromosome 15) fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 6 (caused by a mutation in the zeb1 gene) fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 7 (caused by a mutation in an unknown gene located in chromosome 9) fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy 8 (caused by heterozygous mutation in the agbl1 gene).  early in the disease, patients typically do not have symptoms. in the late-onset forms, the symptoms start around 50 or 60 years and include discomfort and painful episodes of recurrent corneal wounds and hazy vision. over time, discomfort may diminish but severe impairment of visual acuity, and even blindness and cataracts in elderly patients, may be observed. once the vision has worsened, the recommended treatment is a penetrating graft which has excellent results in most cases. last updated: 2/3/2016

MalaCards based summary : Fuchs' Endothelial Dystrophy, also known as fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy, is related to corneal dystrophy, fuchs endothelial, 4 and corneal dystrophy, fuchs endothelial, 6. An important gene associated with Fuchs' Endothelial Dystrophy is COL8A2 (Collagen Type VIII Alpha 2 Chain), and among its related pathways/superpathways are DNA Damage Response (only ATM dependent) and Nanomaterial induced apoptosis. The drugs Loteprednol and Methylprednisolone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include endothelial and eye, and related phenotypes are renal/urinary system and respiratory system

Disease Ontology : 12 A corneal dystrophy characterized by accumulation of focal outgrowths (guttae) and thickening of Descemet's membrane, leading to corneal edema and loss of vision.

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Fuchs endothelial dystrophy is a condition that causes vision problems. The first symptom of this condition is typically blurred vision in the morning that usually clears during the day. Over time, affected individuals lose the ability to see details (visual acuity). People with Fuchs endothelial dystrophy also become sensitive to bright lights.
