A 52-year-old male was referred to us for acute corneal hydrops in his left eye as complication of traumatic corneal ulcer of one month's duration. Both eyes showed discrete grayish white corneal vesicles located in the Descemet's membrane. Specular microscopy showed enlarged and pleomorphic endothelial cells. Both eyes wer diagnosed as posterior polymorphous dystrophy. Acute corneal hydrops in the left eye was successfully treated by pressure bandage leaving slight leucoma.
