Corneal Dystrophy Crystalline of Schnyder

Common Name(s)

Corneal Dystrophy Crystalline of Schnyder

Schynder crystalline corneal dystrophy (SCCD) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, meaning that if either parent has the disorder, there is at least a 50% chance that the child will be born with the disorder. In this disorder, the corneas, the clear covering of the eyes, become clouded in both eyes due to a buildup of fatty substances in the corneas. Close examination shows tiny needle-like crystalline structures in the corneas. Severe cases of SCCD can interfere with vision and require corneal transplants.
