Abstract

A case of acrodermatitis enteropathica occurred with corneal changes consisting of linear subepithelial corneal opacities. From the results of histochemical and electronmicrographic studies on a biopsy specimen of the corneal lesion, no definite conclusion may be drawn as to whether the corneal changes are a manifestation of acrodermatitis enteropathica or a result of iodochlorhydroxyquin therapy.
