An autosomal dominant inherited disease of the Gelsolin gene that appears in middle age, marked by fine, spidery branching lines (that form a lattice pattern). It resembles lattice dystrophy type I, except that type II is accompanied by progressive facial palsy and the lesions are more peripheral and less dense.
