Summaries for Corneal Dystrophy, Gelatinous Drop-Like

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 The following summary is from Orphanet, a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs.Orpha Number: 98957Disease definitionGelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy (GDCD) is a form of superficial corneal dystrophy characterized by multiple prominent milky-white gelatinous nodules beneath the corneal epithelium, and marked visual impairment.EpidemiologyWorldwide prevalence of this form of corneal dystrophy is not known. Cases have been reported in patients from India, Tunisia, Vietnam, Turkey, the USA and other countries, but most cases seem to be in Japan where prevalence is estimated to be 1/300,000.Clinical descriptionLesions generally develop in the first or second decade of life. The clinical features include severe photophobia, tearing, a corneal foreign body sensation and severe progressive loss of vision.EtiologyGelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy is mostly caused by mutations in the TACSTD2 gene (1p32) encoding tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2. More than 20 mutations have been reported but some patients have been found not to have a mutation in this gene, which suggests genetic heterogeneity.Diagnostic methodsFusiform deposits similar to those in lattice corneal dystrophy (LCD, see this term) in the deeper stroma may be found by light microscopy.Genetic counselingAn autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance has been reported.Management and treatmentAn unsatisfactory response has been observed to both lamellar keratoplasty (LKP) and penetrating keratoplasty (PK), as well as to a superficial keratectomy, since amyloid recurs in the graft within about 5 years.Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources.

MalaCards based summary : Corneal Dystrophy, Gelatinous Drop-Like, also known as gelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy, is related to lattice corneal dystrophy and corneal degeneration. An important gene associated with Corneal Dystrophy, Gelatinous Drop-Like is TACSTD2 (Tumor Associated Calcium Signal Transducer 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Ca, cAMP and Lipid Signaling and Adhesion. Affiliated tissues include eye, and related phenotypes are photophobia and corneal dystrophy

OMIM : 58 Gelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by severe corneal amyloidosis leading to blindness. Clinical manifestations, which appear in the first decade of life, include blurred vision, photophobia, and foreign-body sensation. By the third decade, raised, yellowish-gray, gelatinous masses severely impair visual acuity, and lamellar keratoplasty is required for most patients (summary by Tsujikawa et al., 1999). (204870)

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 76 Corneal dystrophy, gelatinous drop-like: A form of lattice corneal dystrophy, a class of inherited stromal amyloidoses characterized by pathognomonic branching lattice figures in the cornea. GDLD is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by severe corneal amyloidosis leading to blindness. Clinical manifestations, which appear in the first decade of life, include blurred vision, photophobia, and foreign-body sensation. By the third decade, raised, yellowish-gray, gelatinous masses severely impair visual acuity.
