Figure 3. IVCM images of phenotypes of PPCD. Vesicular type: A, B (Patient #5) and C, D (Patient #1) - vesicular type. A is at the level of DM, showing a row of focal elliptical vesicular lesions, each has a hyper-reflective halo. B is at the level of the endothelium. Vesicular lesions have hypo-reflective centers and scalloped borders. C: multiple small focal vesicular endothelial lesions. Band Type E, F (Patient #7) and G, H (Patient #4). E shows the edge of a band lesion. It demonstrates the undulation of DM and endothelial surface. F: this image from within a band demonstrates abnormal dimpling of endothelial cells. G shows the edge of a band lesion. It demonstrates the undulation of DM and endothelial surface and hyper-reflective DM. H: within the band lesion. Abnormal dimpling of endothelial cells with hyper-reflectivity of the overlying Descemet's membrane.
