  • Look Inside

Hereditary corneal crystalline dystrophy of Schnyder is presented in mother and her daughter aged 43 and 13 years each. This is the first such family study to be reported in Japan. Corneal thickness was normal in both cases. The corneal endothelium was photographed with a specular microscope. The mean cell size was calculated using computerized image analyzer. The shape of the endothelial cells was hexagonal and mean cell size was within normal range in both cases. Blood lipid analyses showed Type II b hyper-lipoproteinemia in both cases.
