The progression of the refraction, the clinical examination, the video-topographic data, and the Orbscan elevation curves of the twins and file Managed Were Analyzed. For Each twin, There Was Slightly progressive unilateral keratoconus During That Time, located On on the right for the first twin on the left and for the second one. Within the limits of our current diagnostic means clustering, it Appears to be the first case of mirror unilateral keratoconus in monozygotic twins. Several boxes of pathologies mirror-have-been described, Mainly concernant the renal and dental organs. The appearance of pathologies Such mirror May be the consequence of the rise of a genetic or environmental factor During the acquisition of the symmetry of the zygote Occurring before icts split into two monozygotic embryos.
