Resumen

CASTRO-REBOLLO, M.; MONTES-MOLLON, M.A.  y  PEREZ-RICO, C.. Primary bilateral lipid keratopathy. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.5, pp.263-265. ISSN 0365-6691.

Case report: Observational, case report study. A 45-year-old woman complained of bilateral irritation and photophobia since childhood. Slit-lamp examination revealed yellow-whitish deposits involving the deep stroma of the peripheral half of the cornea in both eyes. The evolution was slowly progressive with a moderate impairment of her visual acuity. Discussion: Lipid deposits adopt symmetric and bilateral configurations; the absence of corneal vascularization and ocular pathology as well as any lipoprotein disorder support the diagnosis of primary lipid keratopathy. The slow progressing disease is also confirmed.

Palabras clave : Primary lipid keratopathy; corneal vascularization; primary lipid degeneration; etiopathogenesis; lipid metabolism.
