Schnyder 씨 결정형 각막변성 2예
The authors present a family with two members affected by hereditary corneal dystrophy of Schnyder. A 45-year-old mother and her 15-year-old son visited our hospital with bilateral opacities which affected the center of the cornea symmetrically. They stated that they had found the abnormalities about one month previously, and had have no visual disturbances or inflammatory symptoms. The blood cholesterol of the two patients was essentially in the normal range, and no other systemic abnormalities were found. This is the first family with hereditary crystalline corneal dystrophy of Schnyder to be reported in Korea.
