The Glaucoma Genetics Lab discovers mutation of the TP63 gene in a patient with Lacrimo-Auriculo-Dento-Digital (LADD) syndrome, which is a condition that causes malformation of ears, teeth, and hands as well as problems with tear formation and dry eye. In this manuscript, we report the genetic cause of the first case of LADD syndrome with glaucoma and thin corneas. Read more about this discovery here.
