An Interesting Case of Granular Corneal Dystrophy Type 1

Abstract

Corneal epithelial-stromal and stromal dystrophies are a group of inherited disorders of the cornea that are caused by progressive accumulation of deposits within the layers of the cornea. Most dystrophies previously considered stromal are now classified as either epithelial-stromal dystrophies or stromal dystrophies. These deposits are not caused by inflammation, infection, or trauma, but by genetic mutations that lead to transcription of aberrant proteins resulting in the accumulation of insoluble material within the cornea. Hereby author intends to report an interesting case of granular corneal dystrophy type 1.

Keywords: Granular corneal dystrophy; Bread crump pattern; Epithelial stromal level
