Disease Ontology:8 A corneal dystrophy that is characterized by corneal haze, bilateral loss of vision, eventually necessitating corneal transplantation resulting from progressive punctate opacities in the cornea.

MalaCards: Macular Corneal Dystrophy, also known as macular corneal dystrophy type 1, is related to corneal dystrophy and age related macular degeneration. An important gene associated with Macular Corneal Dystrophy is CHST6 (carbohydrate (N-acetylglucosamine 6-O) sulfotransferase 6), and among its related pathways are Biological oxidations and Articular Cartilage Extracellular Matrix. The drugs interferon alfa-2a and interferon alfa-2b and the compounds glycosaminoglycan and galactose have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, skin and endothelial.
