ANTERIOR SEGMENT DYSGENESIS 1; ASGD1


Alternate names

ANTERIOR SEGMENT DYSGENESIS 1; ASGD1 Is also known as anterior segment mesenchymal dysgenesis, asmd, anterior segment ocular dysgenesis, asod

Description

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).Anterior segment dysgenesis is sometimes divided into subtypes including aniridia (see {106210}), Axenfeld and Rieger anomalies, iridogoniodysgenesis, Peters anomaly, and posterior embryotoxon (Gould and John, 2002).Some patients with ASGD1 have been reported with the Peters anomaly subtype.In its simplist form, Peters anomaly involves a central corneal opacity, but it may also involve adherent iris strands. Some patients have keratolenticular content or cataract. The underlying defects in this form of congenital corneal opacity reside in the posterior stroma, Descemet membrane, and corneal endothelium. The disorder results from abnormal migration or function of neural crest cells and may include abnormalities of other anterior segment structures, such as the lens and iris (summary by Withers et al., 1999).

Most common symptoms of ANTERIOR SEGMENT DYSGENESIS 1; ASGD1

  • Intellectual disability
  • Global developmental delay
  • Nystagmus
  • Strabismus
  • Sensorineural hearing impairment

CATARACT 34, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT34


Alternate names

CATARACT 34, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT34 Is also known as cataract, autosomal recessive congenital 3, cataract 34, multiple types, with or without microcornea, catc3

Description

Mutations in the FOXE3 gene have been found to cause multiple types of cataract, which have been described as membranous and posterior subcapsular.

Most common symptoms of CATARACT 34, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT34

  • Nystagmus
  • Cataract
  • Corneal opacity
  • Congenital cataract
  • Microcornea

CONGENITAL PRIMARY APHAKIA


Alternate names

CONGENITAL PRIMARY APHAKIA Is also known as aphakia, congenital primary, cpak, cpa

Description

Congenital primary aphakia (CPA) is characterised by an absence of the lens. The prevalence is unknown. CPA can be associated with variable secondary ocular defects (including aplasia/dysplasia of the anterior segment of the eye, microphthalmia, and in some cases absence of the iris, retinal dysplasia, or sclerocornea). CPA results from early developmental arrest, around the 4th-5th week of embryogenesis, which prevents the formation of any lens structure. Mutations in the FOXE3 gene were identified in three affected siblings born to consanguineous parents.

Most common symptoms of CONGENITAL PRIMARY APHAKIA

  • Nystagmus
  • Abnormal facial shape
  • Cataract
  • Microphthalmia
  • Glaucoma

FAMILIAL THORACIC AORTIC ANEURYSM AND AORTIC DISSECTION


Alternate names

FAMILIAL THORACIC AORTIC ANEURYSM AND AORTIC DISSECTION Is also known as familial taad

Description

Familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection is a rare genetic vascular disease characterized by the familial occurrence of thoracic aortic aneurysm, dissection or dilatation affecting one or more aortic segments (aortic root, ascending aorta, arch or descending aorta) in the absence of any other associated disease. Depending on the size, location and progression rate of dilatation/dissection, patients may be asymptomatic or may present dyspnea, cough, jaw, neck, chest or back pain, head, neck or upper limb edema, difficulty swallowing, voice hoarseness, pale skin, faint pulse and/or numbness/tingling in limbs. Patients have increased risk of presenting life threatening aortic rupture.

Most common symptoms of FAMILIAL THORACIC AORTIC ANEURYSM AND AORTIC DISSECTION

  • Scoliosis
  • Hypertelorism
  • Hypertension
  • Dilatation
  • Patent ductus arteriosus

PETERS ANOMALY


Alternate names

PETERS ANOMALY Is also known as peters congenital glaucoma

Description

Peters anomaly (PA) is a congenital corneal opacity disorder characterized by a central corneal leukoma that obstructs the pupil leading to visual loss as well as absence of the posterior corneal stroma and Descemet membrane.

Most common symptoms of PETERS ANOMALY

  • Nystagmus
  • Strabismus
  • Cataract
  • Glaucoma
  • Reduced visual acuity
