[Repair of an extensive corneoscleral perforation in a case of ocular rosacea with a keratoplasty]

Klin Monatsbl Augenheilkd. 2006 Oct;223(10):841-3

Authors: Gracner B, Pahor D, Gracner T

BACKGROUND: A 58-year-old female patient with rosacea and a 7year history of eye trouble presented with a spontaneous corneoscleral perforation of the left eye. METHODS: The persisting ocular hypotonia with retinal folds made a closure of the leakage area necessary. Covering with a corneal transplant was chosen from among several possibilities available for the repair of eye-surface defects. The involved parts of the sclera and cornea were removed in a diameter of 7 mm. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: The almost 6-year postoperative course with virtually no problems confirmed the keratoplasty as being effective therapy also in the case of perforation in rosacea scleroperikeratitis.

PMID: 17063429 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
