Diffuse corneal clouding in macular dystrophy
Corneal graft in macular dystrophy. Note the
diffuse clouding in the recipient cornea.
There are multiple greyish white opacities involving the stroma and the corneal periphery (in granular and lattice
dystrophy, the periphery is typically spared). The stroma between the opacities is diffusely cloudy.
Other possible signs:
- One or both eyes may have corneal grafts (unlike other stroma dystrophy, the recipient cornea usually
show changes of macular dystrophy because the dystrophy extends to the periphery).
