Oval corneal opacities in beagles. III. Histochemical demonstration of stromal lipids without hyperlipidemia.


We found oral stromal avascular corneal opacities in 128 eyes of 75 beagles from 497 studied. There were three morphologic types that progressed in severity with time; nebular, racetrack, and white arc. Histochemical study of the earliest morphologic type (nebular) revealed neutral fats, cholesterol, phospholipids, and sometimes fatty acids both… (More)
