Abstract

We studied 15 patients with infantile nephropathic cystinosis. We found that anterior corneal cystine crystal deposition began early in life and proceeded posteriorly as the patient aged; deposition advanced more rapidly in the periphery. Ultrastructural analysis of a corneal button obtained from a 20-year-old patient undergoing corneal transplantation confirmed our clinical observations that crystals were deposited throughout the entire central stroma.
