Association of progressive external ophthalmoplegia and lattice corneal dystrophy (Journal article)

Petroutsos, G./ Kitsos, G./ Asproudis, I./ Melissourgos, I./ Psilas, K.

The authors conducted a study in a family pedigree comprising 33 patients (men 16, women 17). In this pedigree there coexisted patients with progressive external ophthalmoplegia and corneal lattice dystrophy. Two patients with progressive external ophthalmoplegia and ten with lattice corneal dystrophy were found. One of our patients (propositus) suffered from both diseases. Our study proves that, in this pedigree, progressive external ophthalmoplegia and corneal lattice dystrophy have an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance.
