Summaries for Keratoconus 7

OMIM : 57 Keratoconus (KTCN) is a noninflammatory thinning and consequent bulging of the cornea that results in distortion of the corneal surface, altered refractive powers of the eye (both axial and refractive), and reduced visual acuity. In more advanced cases, corneal scarring further reduces visual acuity. Symptoms are highly variable and depend on the stage of the progression of the disorder. The trait has an incidence of approximately 1 in 2,000 individuals and is the most common indication for corneal transplantation in the United States (summary by Gajecka et al., 2009). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of keratoconus, see KTCN1 (148300). (614629)
