Keratoconus is a disease that causes variable degrees of vision loss. Some patients need to undergo corneal transplantation due to disease severity. The development of keratoconus has been strongly associated to allergic and dermatologic diseases such as atopic dermatitis. Keratoconus is a poorly diagnosed condition and as it is of utmost importance to identify it at an early stage, we present three cases of patients with the disease with multidisciplinary management. We emphasize the importance of referring these patients for their subsequent evaluation by specialists.

Key words: atopic dermatitis, keratoconus, corneal transplantation.
