Inherited syndrome characterized by dermoids of cornea associated with short stature.

Corneal Epithelial Dystrophy Short Stature syndrome.

Two cases reported in the literature; autosomal recessive.

Features include skin tumors, short stature, corneal opacity (caused by corneal dermoids), and pupillary anomalies. The condition is distinct from other corneal dermoids by its inheritance mode.

Consider ocular protections. Careful intraoperative positioning is needed.
