Abstract
Purpose: To report a child with a microcornea complicated by bullous kerato pathy and to present the results of a developmental and histological invest igation of a microcornea. Methods: Clinical and histopathological examination. Results: Histopathological examination of the microcornea showed that the m icrocornea of our case lacked the non-banded zone of Descemet's layer and f ormed collagenous layer and secondary Descemet's membrane. Conclusion: This case demonstrates that histological finding of microcornea is not necessarily normal.
