Mouse models for microphthalmia, anophthalmia and cataracts.
Last Updated: Sep 08, 2019

Mouse mutants are a long-lasting, valuable tool to identify genes underlying eye diseases, because the absence of eyes, very small eyes and severely affected, cataractous eyes are easily to detect without major technical equipment. In mice, actually 145 genes or loci are known for ...

X-linked inheritances recessive of congenital nystagmus and autosomal dominant inheritances of congenital cataracts coexist in a Chinese family: a case report and literature review.
Last Updated: Aug 20, 2019

Congenital nystagmus (CN) and congenital cataracts are distinct eye diseases and are usually isolated. Cases with CN and congenital cataracts caused by different genes in one family have been rarely reported.

Genetic landscape of isolated pediatric cataracts: extreme heterogeneity and variable inheritance patterns within genes.
Last Updated: Oct 08, 2019

Pediatric cataract represents an important cause of pediatric visual impairment. While both genetic and environmental causes for pediatric cataract are known, a large proportion remains idiopathic. The purpose of this review is to discuss genes involved in isolated pediatric cataract, ...

X-ray canary in the cath lab: Posterior cataracts.
Last Updated: Feb 15, 2019

Cataract formation in the posterior subcapsular region of the lens is a lesion highly specific to both high-dose acute radiation exposure and chronic low-dose exposure. Low-dose radiation may not manifest lens changes for several decades after initial exposure. Cardiac catheterization ...

Traumatic Cataracts in Children, Long-Term Follow-up in an Israeli Population: A Retrospective Study.
Last Updated: Oct 07, 2019

Ocular trauma in the pediatric population may lead to cataract formation. Managing traumatic cataracts in a visually immature child is a major challenge and can result in poor visual outcome.

The identification and characterization of the p.G91 deletion in CRYBA1 in a Chinese family with congenital cataracts.
Last Updated: Dec 02, 2019

Mutations in more than 52 genes have been identified in isolated congenital cataracts, the majority of which are located in crystalline and connexin (gap junction) genes. An in-frame one amino acid deletion in the beta-crystalline gene CRYBA1 has been reported in several different ...
