Familial occurrence of dot (microcystic), map, fingerprint dystrophy of the cornea.

Abstract

The clinical description of corneal microcysts, maplike changes, and fingerprints has led investigators to the conclusion that these changes may represent a corneal dystrophy. The familial or hereditary evidence which is usually necessary to label a corneal disease a dystrophy has been lacking. This paper describes a familial pattern of disease in two families where three generations were involved and in eight families with corneal changes in at least two generations.
