Abstract

A 29-year-old man presented with a slowly growing mass in his left eye for the past 6 months. He had undergone a lens aspiration for traumatic cataract with an anterior chamber intraocular lens implantation several years ago. On examination, a pearly white mass was seen on the cornea. Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed a hyperdense mass well demarcated from the underlying corneal tissue. The mass was excised by superficial keratectomy and the bare stroma covered with amniotic membrane. Histopathological examination of the excised mass revealed findings consistent with the diagnosis of a corneal keloid. At follow up after 6 months, no recurrence was observed.
