Rare diseases associated to CPAMD8 gene

Here you will find a list of rare diseases related to the CPAMD8. You can also use our tool to get a more accurate diagnosis based on your current symptoms.



Anterior segment dysgeneses (ASGD or ASMD) are a heterogeneous group of developmental disorders affecting the anterior segment of the eye, including the cornea, iris, lens, trabecular meshwork, and Schlemm canal. The clinical features of ASGD include iris hypoplasia, an enlarged or reduced corneal diameter, corneal vascularization and opacity, posterior embryotoxon, corectopia, polycoria, an abnormal iridocorneal angle, ectopia lentis, and anterior synechiae between the iris and posterior corneal surface (summary by Cheong et al., 2016).

Most common symptoms of ANTERIOR SEGMENT DYSGENESIS 8; ASGD8

  • Cataract
  • Ectopia lentis
  • Ectropion
  • Posterior embryotoxon
  • Hypoplasia of the iris
