Summaries for Familial Amyloidosis, Finnish Type

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Familial amyloidosis, Finnish type, or gelsolin amyloidosis, is a condition characterized by abnormal deposits of amyloid protein that mainly affect the eyes, nerves and skin. The 3 main features are amyloid deposits in the cornea (corneal lattice dystrophy), bilateral facial paralysis, and cutis laxa ("sagging" skin). Symptoms generally worsen with age. This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner and is caused by mutations in the GSN gene. Treatment generally focuses on specific signs and symptoms. Plastic surgery may relieve problems caused by facial paralysis and cutis laxa.

MalaCards based summary : Familial Amyloidosis, Finnish Type, also known as amyloid cranial neuropathy with lattice corneal dystrophy, is related to amyloidosis, finnish type and lattice corneal dystrophy type ii. An important gene associated with Familial Amyloidosis, Finnish Type is GSN (Gelsolin). The drug Liver Extracts has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, skin and liver.
