33 Possible Causes for Variable Degree of Corneal Opacities

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    BACKGROUND: Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (Hunter's syndrome) is an X-linked chromosomal storage disorder due to deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase with patients rarely living till adulthood. Failure to identify patients early could contribute to an increased morbidity as identified in this case[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Isolated Congenital Sclerocornea

    Variable degrees of iridolenticulocorneal adhesions are often also present [ 1 ].[synapse.koreamed.org] Peters' anomaly is characterized by central corneal opacity with defects in the corneal endothelium, Descemet's membrane, and posterior stroma.[synapse.koreamed.org]

  • Peters Anomaly

    The phenotype is characterized by a variable degree of corneal opacity with defects in the posterior corneal structures, in addition to cornea-lens and/or iris-lens adhesions[molvis.org] Variable degrees of iridolenticulocorneal adhesions are often also present [ 1 ].[synapse.koreamed.org] Peters' anomaly is characterized by central corneal opacity with defects in the corneal endothelium, Descemet's membrane, and posterior stroma.[synapse.koreamed.org]

  • Reiter's Syndrome

  • Hereditary Corneal Dystrophy

    Most corneal dystrophies have no systemic manifestations and present with variable shaped corneal opacities in a clear or cloudy cornea and they affect visual acuity to different[webmedcentral.com] degrees.[webmedcentral.com] […] endothelium (posterior corneal dystrophies).[webmedcentral.com]

  • Rieger Syndrome

  • Cholesterol Ester Storage Disease

    Over time, corneal opacities may lead to severe visual impairment requiring corneal transplantation. The degree of hemolytic anemia is variable.[orpha.net] Corneal opacities usually develop in early childhood and are characterized by grayish dots throughout the corneal stroma.[orpha.net] Clinical description Age of onset and severity of clinical manifestations are variable.[orpha.net]
