Abstract

Recurrence of a corneal dystrophy after keratoplasty can occur in multiple dystrophies, including macular, granular, and lattice dystrophies. We treated two unrelated patients who had documented posterior polymorphous dystrophy and who, in previously clear grafts, developed harziness in the zone of Descemet's membrane, which led to graft failure. Histologic examination of the keratoplasty specimen showed changes typical of posterior polymorphous dystrophy.
