We examined five patients with an undescribed type of lattice corneal dystrophy. All patients were in the seventh to ninth decades of life and had developed decreasing vision late in life, None of the patients had suffered from recurrent epithelial erosions, there was no overt evidence of systemic amyloidosis, and the lattice lines were much thicker than those usually observed in lattice corneal dystrophy types I and II. Available pedigree data from two families of three patients indicated that the corneal disorder affected several siblings but not the parents or offspring. Two patients had no affected family members. There was no known consanguinity in any of the four families.
