Core Tip Various ocular manifestations of Alport syndrome have been well described. However, reports of keratoconus in the presence of Alport syndrome is limited in the literature. Keratoconus is a form of corneal ectasia and has shown disorganized and thinning collagen under microscopy. Both Alport syndrome and keratoconus demonstrate collagenous changes which may eventually lead to impaired function of the affected tissue. We present a case of keratoconus in the presence of Alport syndrome.
