In their article about a Hispanic KERA mutation in the September 2005 issue of the ARCHIVES, Ebenezer et al1 discussed previously reported KERA mutations in a Finnish cohort,2 a Chinese-American patient,2 and a Bangladeshi family.3 They described KERA as encoding 10 conserved leucine-rich regions (LRRs) and stated that previously reported KERA mutations associated with autosomal recessive cornea plana affect 1 of these LRRs.
