Summaries for Cataract 4, Multiple Types

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 74 Cataract 4, multiple types: An opacification of the crystalline lens of the eye that frequently results in visual impairment or blindness. Opacities vary in morphology, are often confined to a portion of the lens, and may be static or progressive. CTRCT4 includes crystalline aculeiform, congenital cerulean and non-nuclear polymorphic cataracts, among others. Crystalline aculeiform cataract is characterized by fiberglass-like or needle-like crystals projecting in different directions, through or close to the axial region of the lens. Non- nuclear polymorphic cataract is a partial opacity with variable location between the fetal nucleus of the lens and the equator. The fetal nucleus is normal. The opacities are irregular and look similar to a bunch of grapes and may be present simultaneously in different lens layers. Congenital cerulean cataract is characterized by peripheral bluish and white opacifications organized in concentric layers with occasional central lesions arranged radially. The opacities are observed in the superficial layers of the fetal nucleus as well as the adult nucleus of the lens. Involvement is usually bilateral. Visual acuity is only mildly reduced in childhood. In adulthood, the opacifications may progress, making lens extraction necessary. Histologically the lesions are described as fusiform cavities between lens fibers which contain a deeply staining granular material. Although the lesions may take on various colors, a dull blue is the most common appearance and is responsible for the designation cerulean cataract.

MalaCards based summary : Cataract 4, Multiple Types, also known as aculeiform cataract, is related to cataract 3, multiple types and pheochromocytoma. An important gene associated with Cataract 4, Multiple Types is CRYGD (Crystallin Gamma D). The drugs Kava and Anesthetics have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye and liver, and related phenotype is developmental cataract.

Disease Ontology : 12 A cataract that has material basis in heterozygous mutation in the gamma-D-crystallin gene (CRYGD) on chromosome 2q33.

OMIM : 57 Mutations in the CRYGD gene have been found to cause multiple types of cataract, which have been described as aculeiform, crystalline aculeiform, crystalline, crystal, frosted, needle-shaped, fasciculiform, congenital cerulean, nonnuclear polymorphic congenital, central nuclear, lamellar, and punctate. Some patients also exhibit microcornea. Because multiple types of cataract are caused by mutation in the CRYGD gene, some of which display intrafamilial variability, several earlier distinct cataract entries in OMIM have been included here.
