Massive corneal-epibulbar dermoid managed with pre-descemetic DALK and SLET.

GMS Ophthalmol Cases 2021 5;11:Doc05. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

Department of Ophthalmology, AIIMS, Bathinda, Punjab. India.

Management of large corneal-epibulbar dermoids always poses a challenge to the surgeons due to deeper corneal involvement. Also, there is a risk of limbal stem cell deficiency and formation of pseudopterygium with larger areas of limbal involvement. We report a novel surgical technique for the management of giant corneal-epibulbar dermoid with pre-descemetic deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and simple limbal epithelial transfer (SLET).

Progressive large pediatric corneal limbal dermoid management with tissue glue-assisted monolayer amniotic membrane transplantation: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(46):e13084

Department of Ophthalmology.

Rationale: Limbal dermoids are choristomas known as congenital benign tumors found in abnormal locations. Despite the benign nature, enlarging limbal dermoids may cause visual abnormalities by cornea infiltration with fat component, visual axis invasion, gradually induced corneal astigmatism, and finally result in anisometropic amblyopia. Here we report a rare case of progressive, large pediatric corneal limbal dermoid in a newborn, managed with tissue glue-assisted monolayer amniotic membrane transplantation. Read More
