About this section

Genetics Home Reference:21 Lattice corneal dystrophy type II is characterized by an accumulation of protein clumps called amyloid deposits in tissues throughout the body. The deposits frequently occur in blood vessel walls and basement membranes, which are thin, sheet-like structures that separate and support cells in many tissues. Amyloid deposits lead to characteristic signs and symptoms involving the eyes, nerves, and skin that worsen with age.

MalaCards based summary: Lattice Corneal Dystrophy Type Ii, also known as amyloid cranial neuropathy with lattice corneal dystrophy, is related to lattice corneal dystrophy and corneal dystrophy. An important gene associated with Lattice Corneal Dystrophy Type Ii is GSN (gelsolin). Affiliated tissues include eye and skin.
