PURPOSE To identify the genetic basis of late-onset Fuchs corneal dystrophy (FCD). METHODS Phenotypes and genotypes at 1107 short tandem repeat polymorphism markers were obtained for 43 affected and 33 unaffected individuals in three large families. Two-point genetic linkage analysis was performed with MLINK and multipoint linkage with SimWalk 2.89. RESULTS In each family, the most significant cluster of two-point lod scores mapped to chromosome 18, at 18q21.2-q21.3. The highest two-point… CONTINUE READING
