Cataract 4, Multiple Types; Ctrct4

Description

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.
