Abstract

This case report deals with a 68-year-old man in whom a contusion resulted in a complete loss of the iris through an Elliot fistula. The abrupt increase in intraocular pressure caused the iris to be extruded through the fistula and the ruptured conjunctiva. A functional drainage bleb was reconstructed by pulling and suturing subconjunctival tissue underneath the ruptured conjunctiva.
