Synonyms:
  • anterior limiting membrane dystrophy type II
  • corneal dystrophy honeycomb-shaped
  • corneal dystrophy of Bowman layer type II
  • TBCD
  • Waardenburg-Jonker corneal dystrophy
Definition: An epithelial-stromal TGFBI dystrophy that is characterized by recurrent erosions and honeycomb-shaped opacification located_in the cornea, proteinaceous deposits in the anterior stroma and subepithelium, and progressive early vision loss, and has_material_basis_in autosomal dominant inheritance of heterozygous mutation of transforming growth factor beta-induced gene located in chromosome 5q31.1, which encodes keratoepithelin. Abnormalities lead to increased protein deposition and disruption especially of Bowman's membrane of the cornea. https://www.omim.org/entry/602082
