A 15-year-old girl presented to our clinic with a history of gradual loss of vision and photosensitivity. She had bilateral corneal haze with stromal oedema. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/400 in the right eye and 20/200 in the left. She underwent penetrating keratoplasty in both eyes. Corneal histopathology revealed a pattern similar to Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy. The graft settled well and stayed clear while the vision kept improving. Her brother also presented with similar symptoms.
