Congenital heredity endothelial dystrophy (CHED) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of the cornea. We have performed genetic linkage analysis with microsatellite markers on a seven generation British pedigree. Two-point linkage analysis revealed significant linkage of CHED (lod score >3) with seven marker loci mapping to chromosome 20. The highest observed lod score was 7.20 (theta=0.026) with marker D20S114. Multipoint analysis gave a maximum lod score of 9.34 between D20S48 and D20S471… CONTINUE READING
