Abstract

Atypical midperipheral lattice corneal dystrophy presenting with adult onset and negative family history should arouse suspicion for an association with paraproteinemias or amyloidosis. Exclusion of TGFBI mutations should alert the clinician to the possibility of potentially life-threatening conditions, with referral for careful systemic evaluation.
