The association of keratoconus with atopic disorders has been described in several uncontrolled clinical studies.1-3 Although keratoconus is known to occur in patients with atopic dermatitis, to the best of our knowledge, the association of keratoconus with vernal keratoconjunctivitis has not been previously reported. We treated two patients with severe unilateral vernal keratoconjunctivitis and unilateral keratoconus.
