Bilateral white crystalline opacities of the central corneas were found at autopsy in the eyes of a 17-day-old girl with Turner's Syndrome. Corticosteroid therapy had not been used. Histopathologic and electron microscopic evaluation revealed clusters of gram-negative rods between relatively intact stromal lamellae. Inflammation was mild and restricted to the limbus and peripheral cornea. This case represents an unusual presentation of an infectious crystalline keratopathy.
