Three patients had progressive essential iris atrophy with corneal endothelial guttata changes. Two patients were a mother and daughter with this disease, a rare familial occurrence. The two young patients received fluorescein angiography of the iris. Early phases showed rubeosis; later phases showed leakage. The finding of rubeosis suggested the presence of ischemia in instances of progressive essential iris atrophy.
