corneal dystrophy, lattice type 3A(redirected from lattice corneal dystrophy type IIIA)
corneal dystrophy, lattice type 3AAn autosomal dominant (OMIM:608471) form of corneal dystrophy characterised by wispy, greyish, cotton-like threads limited to a zone between the centre of the cornea and the periphery, with very slowly progressive loss of vision that develops in older elders aged 70 to 90.
Has been linked to defects of TGFBI, which encodes an RGD protein that binds to type-I, -II and -IV collagens and plays a role in cell–collagen interactions.
