Գլխավոր Հիվանդություններ Meesmann corneal dystrophy

Meesmann corneal dystrophy, also Stocker-Holt dystrophy, is a type of corneal dystrophy and a keratin disease. It is named for German ophthalmologist Alois Meesmann (1888-1969). It is sometimes called "Meesmann-Wilke syndrome", after the joint contribution of Meesmann and Wilke. Genetics It has been associated with genes KRT3 and KRT12 located on chromosome 12 and 17 respectively. Clinical presentation This slowly progressive disorder is characterized by small cysts in the epithelium of the cornea. Patients with Meesmann corneal dystrophy are intolerant of contact lenses, as these devices directly traumatize the corneal epithelium.
