[Article in French]


Two cases of bilateral Thygeson's keratitis were examined by in vivo confocal microscopy. In the corneas, fine deposits of highly reflected material appeared immediately below the basal lamina. This is the first time that such morphological features are described in patients with Thygeson's keratitis.
