Corneal dystrophy is defined as lesions of cornea of an unknown ate logy which may manifest either at birth or at 1st on 2nd decade of life may remain stationary or progressive have got a strong hero familial tendency my case was first cousin marriage delivered child had bil central symetrical corneal opacity with absence of deep vascularsation tyand impaired cor sensations diagnostic of cor dystrophy what was a rare thin was left eye association of ant staphloma [1,2].
Bil cong cor dystrophy is a rare disease more rare is the association of other con anamolies omen can have1 cong glaucoma association in other eye the other associations are 2 ant staphyloma 3 keratoconus 4 cong absence of dest membrane 5 ched 6 deafness cogans syndrome 7kcs 8 medulated optic nerve fibers [3-7].
Through bil cong cor dust is rare more is associated other cong associated lesions as was in my case ant staphloma.
References 1 b j o 2 a j o 3 japanese j oph 4 omany j oph I found only 2 case where bil cong corn dystrophy was associated with other con anmolies in r p center a I am bil cong cor dust was associated with deafness 2 in k k eyes hospital riyadh k s a bil cong cor dyst was associates with cong glaucoma probably my case may be 3rd sor 4th in literature worth reporting.
