Abstract

We present a case of keratoconus in which the association with posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy was established by confocal microscopy. Confocal microscopy enable us to assess the differential diagnosis between posterior corneal dystrophies, essential for a prognosis and therapeutic decision.
