The Trilepis-type can be derived from the Carex-type by a flattening of the scutellum and a shifting of the root cap to a subbasal position (Fig.
in eyes examined in the prodromal period before the onset of clinical EKC, the epithelial, Bowman's, and stromal layers appeared normal in iVCM, while the subbasal plexus showed an increased number of Langerhans cells (Figure 1).
Their work reveals that, in general, most microcreagrines have ist subbasal (Fig.
Previous ophthalmologic studies demonstrated a complex relationship between the subbasal nerve plexus (SNP), decreased corneal sensation, and the development of diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy [13].
However, to our knowledge, there are no reports of a case so closely observed: we observed the process in which the blocked corneal nerve was restored within several months after disappearance of subbasal nerve fibers due to the trigeminal nerve block as well as the accompanying improvement of corneal findings.
At the junction of the lesion and transparent cornea, however, a large number of dendritic cells, basal epithelial cells, and subbasal nerve plexuses were observed to form netting via long interdigitating dendrites.
Moreover, the occupied area of the corneal subbasal nerve in the diabetic + SA group showed a significant increase compared with the diabetic group ( F = 11.918, P = 0.024), which was still less than that of the control group [ F = 8.000, P = 0.047; [Figure 2].{Figure 2}
