Often a railroad-shaped pattern (arrows) of the corneal endothelium can be seen at the slit lamp which is almost pathognomonic (c) pattern of the corneal endothelium can be seen at the slit lamp and is almost pathognomonic  (Fig. 10c). Eyes with posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy (PPCD) often need no therapy for decades.
Posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy (PPCD) 2. Congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy (CHED) 3. 1 Posterior Polymorphous Corneal Dystrophy (PPCD) In posterior polymorphous dystrophy, the endothelial cells undergo a transformation to epithelial-like cells  (Fig. 10a, b). Scattered endothelial vesicles can be shown with retroillumination . Of note is that the vesicles in retroillumination can be visualized in IVCM as large oval structures that contain abnormal endothelial cells  which allow a clear distinction from FECD corneas.
