Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Concurrent bilateral keratoconus and granular dystrophy is reported in a 32-year-old patient with decreased vision. Initially contact lenses were attempted unsuccessfully to treat the conditions. There are a handful of other reports of these combined pathologies in the literature, and the likelihood of a chance cause or possible genetic linkage between the conditions is discussed.
