Purpose To report a patient with a tumor-like corneal keloid. Methods Retrospective review of clinical features and histopathologic findings. Results A 68-year-old woman with a remote history of an orbital tumor treated with radiation developed a corneal tumor. A biopsy of the tumor showed fibrocellular tissue and her blind, painful eye was enucleated. Pathologic findings in the enucleated eye showed that the corneal mass was consistent with a large keloid. Conclusions A corneal keloid may clinically appear as a large corneal tumor.
