PURPOSE Keratoconus is a progressive ectatic disease of the cornea. Despite extensive clinical and laboratory investigations, its pathogenesis remains unclear. In this study, we examined the localization of betaig-h3, a recently described extracellular matrix protein in keratoconus corneas both in the absence and presence of subepithelial scarring. METHODS Two normal corneas and central corneal buttons of 10 patients with keratoconus were excised during perforating keratoplasty and examined… CONTINUE READING
