We describe the clinical features of a rare congenital ectodermal dysplasia - Keratitis Icthyosis Deafness (KID) syndrome in a 45-year-old female patient, who presented with corneal neovascularization and advanced cataract in both eyes. Sequential bilateral extracapsular cataract extraction with implantation of posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) in the bag was performed for visual rehabilitation. A review of published literature for this rare disease is also presented.
