Abstract

We diagnosed a 65-year-old female as type I lattice corneal dystrophy. Slitlamp biomicroscopy showed globular and amber-colored deposits beneath the epithelium with stromal opacity consistent with lattice dystrophy in both eyes. Deep lamellar keratoplasty was performed on both eyes. Histopathological studies showed characteristic features of spheroidal keratopathy and amyloid dystrophy. No complications has developed during 2 years after keratoplasty. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of lattice corneal dystrophy associated with spheroidal keratopathy in Japan.
