Abstract

A case of dysproteinemia with corneal and conjunctival crystalline changes is described. These crystalline changes were found to be caused by stromal infiltration of the cornea and conjunctiva by cells containing numerous crystallike deposits in their cytoplasm. Morphologically identical crystals were found in abundance in plasma cells of the bone marrow.
