Congenital Corneal Dystrophy: Progressive Sensorineural Deafness in a Family

Arch Ophthalmol. 1971;85(1):27-32. doi:10.1001/archopht.1971.00990050029005
Abstract

A family has three siblings suffering from congenital corneal dystrophy in association with progressive sensorineural deafness. With the parents of the propositi being first cousins, an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance is suggested. All the positive findings in these patients are attributed to a single gene.
