To identify features of posterior polymorphous dystrophy (PPMD) by in vivo confocal microscopy, the corneas of a female patient with PPMD were exam ned using slit-lamp biomicroscopy and slit-scanning in vivo confocal microscopy. Characteristic endothelial vesicular and band lesions were seen clinically and easily identified using in vivo confocal microscopy. However endothelial pleomorphism, an increased density and reflectance of posterior stromal keratocytes, and prominence of corneal nerves… CONTINUE READING
