Abstract

A family of ten individuals aged 18 months to 75 years had biomicroscopic findings consisting of large, amorphous, sheet-like opacifications of the posterior stroma and Descemet's membrane, and alterations of the endothelium. A uniform thinning of the cornea was present. These findings do not conform to previously described corneal dystrophies. The condition appears minimally progressive and the three-generation pedigree indicated an autosomal-dominant inheritance pattern.
