Abstract: A 49 year old patient with progressive massive bilateral corneal opacifications associated with a HDL (high-density-lipoprotein) deficiency is described. The opacifications started at the age of twenty and progressed slowly. They were found diffusely over the cornea, though more in the corneal periphery. A penetrating keratoplasty at the right eye was performed. The diagnosis of Fish Eye Disease was put forward on the basis of the ophthalmological, clinical, biochemical and pathological appearance. After 2 year follow-up, the graft was clear. The final distance and near vision of the right eye was 8/10 and Snellen 1 respectively.
