Linkage analysis in lattice corneal dystrophy

, : Linkage analysis in lattice corneal dystrophy. American Journal of Medical Genetics 19(2): 387-390

Two kindreds of lattice corneal dystrophy (LCD) [McKusick, 1983, catalog No 12220] were studied for linkage. Relatives (51) were examined clinically, and 27 affected and 24 normal persons were ascertained. Tight linkage could be excluded for 15 informative markers with LOD scores of less than -2.0. The largest positive LOD score was 0.56 at .theta. = 0.17 for linkage between haptoglobin and LCD. Combined with a previous study, the combined LOD score is 0.96.
