Reis-Bücklers corneal dystrophy. Reticular opacity in the superficial cornea
Reis-Bucklers corneal dystrophy (or Reis-Bücklers corneal dystrophy), also known as Corneal dystrophy of Bowman layer, type I, is a rare form of human corneal dystrophy in which the Bowman's layer undergoes disintegration. The disease has been associated with mutations in TGFBI gene. Symmetrical reticular opacities, usually appearing bilaterally in the upper cornea by the age of 4 or 5 years, elevate the corneal epithelium, leading eventually to its erosions that prompt attacks of ocular hyperemia, pain, and photophobia.
