CATARACT 21, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT21


Alternate names

CATARACT 21, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT21 Is also known as cataract, congenital, cerulean type, 4, cataract, pulverulent, juvenile-onset, cca4, cataract 21, multiple types, with or without microcornea

Description

Mutations in the MAF gene have been found to cause multiple types of cataract, which have been described as cortical pulverulent, lamellar, nuclear, nuclear pulverulent, nuclear stellate, anterior polar, anterior subcapsular, posterior subcapsular, and cerulean. In some cases, the cataracts are of juvenile onset.The preferred title of this entry was formerly 'Cataract, Pulverulent, Juvenile-Onset,' with an 'Included' title/symbol of 'Cataract, Congenital, Cerulean Type, 4; CCA4.'

Most common symptoms of CATARACT 21, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT21

  • Cataract
  • Delayed speech and language development
  • Atrial septal defect
  • Microphthalmia
  • Autism

AYME-GRIPP SYNDROME; AYGRP


Alternate names

AYME-GRIPP SYNDROME; AYGRP Is also known as cataracts, congenital, with sensorineural deafness, down syndrome-like facial appearance, short stature, and mental retardation

Description

Ayme-Gripp syndrome is a clinically homogeneous phenotype characterized by congenital cataracts, sensorineural hearing loss, intellectual disability, seizures, brachycephaly, a distinctive flat facial appearance, and reduced growth (Niceta et al., 2015).

Most common symptoms of AYME-GRIPP SYNDROME; AYGRP

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Short stature
  • Hearing impairment

CATARACT-MICROCORNEA SYNDROME


Description

Cataract-microcornea syndrome is characterized by the association of congenital cataract and microcornea without any other systemic anomaly or dysmorphism.

Most common symptoms of CATARACT-MICROCORNEA SYNDROME

  • Nystagmus
  • Cataract
  • Myopia
  • Corneal opacity
  • Iris coloboma

CATARACT 2, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT2


Alternate names

CATARACT 2, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT2 Is also known as cataract 2, multiple types, with or without microcornea, ccl, cataract, coppock-like

Description

Mutations in the CRYGC gene have been found to cause several types of cataract, which have been described as Coppock-like; embryonic, fetal, infantile nuclear; zonular pulverulent; and lamellar. Some patients also exhibit microcornea.Before it was known that mutations in the CRYGC gene cause several types of cataract, this entry was titled 'Cataract, Coppock-like,' with the symbol CCL.

Most common symptoms of CATARACT 2, MULTIPLE TYPES; CTRCT2

  • Nystagmus
  • Cataract
  • Blindness
  • Photophobia
  • Congenital cataract
