We read with great interest the article by Lalive et al1 that elegantly described corneal stromal nerve alterations imaged by laser scanning in vivo confocal microscopy (LSCM) in a patient with peripheral autoimmune neuropathy. The case clearly illustrates the potential application of this technology to follow disease progression and assess responses to treatment, an area in which we and a small number of research groups are also interested.
