KEGG   DISEASE: Congenital primary aphakia
Entry
H00676                      Disease                                

Name
Congenital primary aphakia
Description
Congenital primary aphakia (CPA) is a rare congenital eye disorder characterized by the absence of lens. Formation of lens and lens-induced anterior structures does not take place in CPA, resulting in complete aplasia of the anterior segment of the eye. CPA is caused by mutations in FOXE3, a lens-specific transcription factor.
