We report two cases with dense corneal arcus with abnormally low levels of serum high-density lipoproteins. One case with arcus senilis had a history of corneal clouding since youth but no systemic associations. The other case had an arcus juvenilis with anemia and hepatosplenomegaly but an absence of renal involvement. The genetic analysis of this case was performed and was suggestive of lecithin-cholesterol aminotransferase deficiency.
