Abstract

Hereditary corneal edema is a previously undescribed corneal dystrophy thought to be transmitted as a dominant trait. This study presents five members of a family with hereditary corneal edema and describes the uniqueness of their condition from other corneal dystrophies. Emphasis is placed on electron microscopic studies of a corneal button from one member who had penetrating keratoplasty.
