A 36-year-old man had congenital fistulae of the palpebral lobes of the lacrimal glands, with orifices bilaterally in the intermarginal strip of his upper eyelids near the external canthi. The left fistula was cystic and had become chronically inflamed. Because antibiotic therapy was unsuccessful, excision was necessary. Congenital fistulae are extremely rare, forming a lateral and tarsal group, each group having typical characteristics.
Ultrasound biomicroscopy and anterior segment optical coherence tomography both have their own pros and cons in imaging

A patient is presented who had unrecognised Wilson's disease. He had developed a clinically obvious Kayser-Fleischer ring in only one eye. The eye without the corneal ring had been injured in childhood and had a low intraocular pressure. Possible mechanisms for formation of a Kayser-Fleischer ring are reviewed and the lack of Kayser-Fleischer ring in this case is discussed.
The case of a 20-year-old male with the Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome associated with unilateral acute corneal hydrops is presented. The initial findings were of keratoglobus, but after the corneal oedema had settled the cornea assumed a more conical contour. The relationship between keratoglobus, keratoconus, and acute hydrops is discussed.
A case of acquired posterior keratoconus is presented. As in developmental cases the vision was moderately reduced and the condition was not progressive. Posterior keratoconus is usually developmental in origin, but trauma has been implicated in some cases.
