Purpose: In spite of average, age keratoplasty by lattice dystrophy (LD) is 40 - 50 years, the age of the first keratoplasty varies between 20 and 70 years. Except dystrophy, there are other factors which influence the development of pathological changes in the cornea. The most frequent symptom of the LD is the recurrence erosion (RE), which can be complicated by different inflammatory processes. The aim was to study changes in clinical picture and morphological findings by inflammatory processes of cornea in LD.
