PurposeTo identify the molecular genetic cause of macular corneal dystrophy (MCD) in four probands, and characterize phenotypic similarities between MCD and keratoconus.MethodsWe performed ophthalmological examination, Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam, Oculus Inc.), histopathological examination of excised corneal buttons, and direct sequencing of the CHST6 coding region.ResultsPentacam measurements were taken in six eyes of three probands. All showed diffuse corneal thinning with paracentral… CONTINUE READING
