A hereditary autosomal recessive corneal dystrophy characterized by severe corneal amyloidosis leading to blindness. Clinical manifestations, which appear in the first decade of life, include blurred vision, PHOTOPHOBIA, and foreign-body sensation. By the third decade, raised, yellowish-gray, gelatinous masses severely impair VISUAL ACUITY, and CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION is required for most patients. Mutations in the TACSTD2 gene have been identified. OMIM: 204870
