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.
