Lipid keratopathy (LK) is a disease in which fat deposits accumulate in the cornea, leading to opacification and decrease of visual acuity. It can be idiopathic, i.e. without signs of previous corneal disease or secondary to ocular or systemic diseases. It is usually associated with abnormal vascularization of the cornea, and the lipid classically deposits adjacent to these vessels. There have been case reports of annular LK in literature, but to the best of our knowledge, familial association has not been reported with it. In this case series, we thus present a family of six patients with bilateral annular LK.
