ⓘ Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy

Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, is a disorder of the eye that can cause pain and dryness.

It is sometimes included in the group of corneal dystrophy. It differs from the formal definition of corneal dystrophy, currently, in most cases, non-family. He also has a fluctuating course, while for common corneal dystrophy the course is progressive. When it is part of this group, this is the most common type of corneal dystrophy.

  • Fuchs dystrophy also referred to as Fuchs corneal endothelial dystrophy FCED and Fuchs endothelial dystrophy FED is a slowly progressing corneal
  • Histologically, the Descemet s membrane in CHED becomes diffusely thickened and laminated. Multiple layers of basement membrane - like material appear to form
  • cornea. Descemet s membrane as the basement membrane for the endothelial layer, is secreted by the single layer of squamous epithelial cells that compose
  • embryo contributes to the formation of Reichert s membrane a thick extra - embryonic basement membrane When the laminin α1 chain is deficient in an organism
  • failure of the cornea s outermost layer of epithelial cells to attach to the underlying basement membrane Bowman s layer The condition is excruciatingly
  • vulva that shows dysplasia with varying degrees of atypia. The epithelial basement membrane is intact and the lesion is thus not invasive but has invasive
  • Benedek Descemet s membrane also posterior limiting membrane a thin acellular layer that serves as the modified basement membrane of the corneal endothelium
  • matrix. Abnormal laminin - 332, which is essential for epithelial cell adhesion to the basement membrane leads to a condition called junctional epidermolysis
  • seriously, infective condition of the cornea involving disruption of its epithelial layer with involvement of the corneal stroma. It is a common condition
