Abstract

The clinical description of corneal microcysts, maplike changes, and fingerprints has led investigators to the conclusion that these changes may represent a corneal dystrophy. The familial or hereditary evidence which is usually necessary to label a corneal disease a dystrophy has been lacking. This paper describes a familial pattern of disease in two families where three generations were involved and in eight families with corneal changes in at least two generations.
