Mutations Arg124Cys, Thr538Arg, Arg555Thr, Arg555Gln, Leu558Pro, and His626Arg in TGFBI gene were analyzed by polymerase chain reaction and restriction in 84 patients with various forms of corneal stromal dystrophies from 49 unrelated families and 29 clinically healthy relatives of these patients. A new mutation in TGFBI gene, Leu558Pro, was identified in the patients with atypical lattice dystrophy. The haplotypes of four microsatellite markers surrounding TGFBI gene region were analyzed in 22 families. The data on association of genotype and phenotype suggest that the analysis of TGFBI gene mutations is important for differential diagnostics of corneal dystrophies.
