Article Excerpts about Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome

ICE syndrome is actually a grouping of three closely linked conditions: iris nevus (or Cogan-Reese) syndrome; Chandler's syndrome; and essential (progressive) iris atrophy (hence the acronym ICE). The most common feature of this group of diseases is the movement of endothelial cells off the cornea onto the iris. This loss of cells from the cornea often leads to corneal swelling, distortion of the iris, and variable degrees of distortion of the pupil, the adjustable opening at the center of the iris that allows varying amounts of light to enter the eye. This cell movement also plugs the fluid outflow channels of the eye, causing glaucoma. (Source: excerpt from Facts About the Cornea and Corneal Disease: NEI)

Definitions of Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome:

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome as a "rare disease".
