A Mysterious Tale: The Search for the Cause of 100+ Cases of Diffuse Lamellar Keratitis

Publishing an anonymous article in which the author is not identified in a peer reviewed journal may seem inconsistent. However, this mysterious tale can, I believe, be extremely instructive for all readers, especially since it leads to no firm, clear-cut conclusion. I expect considerable correspondence after this article is published. The author requested anonymity for one simple reason: the risk of exposure for litigation with such an honest and revealing narrative.  After consultation with members of the JRS Editorial Board, I decided to publish the anonymous article for the potential benefit of readers of JRS, who I am sure will understand the circumstances.
