The Scheie's Syndrome (Mucopolyssacharidosis I-S) is an autossomal recessive disease characterized by the absence of the alpha-L-iduronidase enzyme which causes an accumulation of glycosaminoglycans throughout the connective tissue cells. The patients’ intelligence and their life expectancy are often normal. The individual functional capacity is usually reduced by ocular involvement.

The authors report five cases of Scheie's Syndrome, the results of corneal keratoplasty in three eyes of two patients and the management of high intraocular pressure. The etiology of glaucoma in this Syndrome is discussed.

Key-words: Scheie's Syndrome; Mucopolyssacharidosis; Keratoplasty
