Cornea plana

Cornea plana
Father and daughter. Bilaterally flattened corneas (30 instead of 44 diopters) with values that correspond to the curvature of the sclera. The anterior chamber is flat. Father has additional left keratopathy with epidermalisation of the central cornea because of reduced lidclosure. Malformations like colobomas, peripheral scleralization of the cornea and congenital cataracts occur. Autosomal dominant or recessive inheritance.
