Interpretive Data
Background Information:
Characteristics:
High intraocular pressure, globe enlargement and edema, corneal opacification, thinning of anterior sclera, iris atrophy, anomalous deep anterior chamber, photophobia, blepharospasm, and excessive tearing.
Incidence:
1:5,000-20,000 individuals in Western countries; varies in other ethnicities.
Inheritance:
Autosomal recessive.
Cause:
Two Cytochrome P4501B1 (CYP1B1) gene mutations.
Clinical Sensitivity:
20-100% in familial cases, 10-15% in isolated cases.
Methodology:
Bidirectional sequencing of the entire CYP1B1 coding region, intron-exon boundaries and 5 prime untranslated region.
Analytical Sensitivity and Specificity:
99%
Limitations:
Large gene deletions/duplications and deep intronic mutations will not be detected. Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations.
