ⓘ Megalocornea

Megalocornea is an extremely rare nonprogressive condition in which the cornea has an enlarged diameter, reaching and exceeding 13 mm. It is noted in some patients with Marfan syndrome. It is thought to have two subforms, one with autosomal inheritance and the other X-linked. The X-linked form is more common and males generally constitute 90% of cases.
