M.D.; Tedesco, John D.O.; Carlton, Richard M.D.; Telfer, Allen C.O.T.Cornea: 1987 Original Article: PDF Only Abstract Abstract A 48-year-old man has been followed for 15 months for what was clinically diagnosed as Terrien's marginal degeneration combined with anterior basement membrane dystrophy. This patient was originally referred for evaluation and consultation regarding his basement membrane changes, fluctuating vision, and recurrent erosion symptoms. This is believed to be the first reported case of Terrien's marginal degeneration associated with anterior basement membrane dystrophy. (C) Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
