MalaCards based summary : Keratomalacia, also known as vitamin a deficiency, is related to xerophthalmia and phenylketonuria, and has symptoms including photophobia, amaurosis fugax and metamorphopsia. An important gene associated with Keratomalacia is RHO (Rhodopsin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins and Visual Cycle in Retinal Rods. The drugs Prednisolone phosphate and Prednisolone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, bone and liver, and related phenotype is Decreased viability with TRAIL.
