Abstract

PURPOSE: To report a case of intracorneal hematoma occurring in association with Mooren ulceration. METHOD: Case report. RESULTS: In an 81-year-old man with bilateral Mooren ulceration, a dense intracorneal hemorrhage occurred in the right eye secondary to peripheral corneal neovascularization and was followed by slow resolution over a 3-year period. Following subsequent lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty, histopathologic examination demonstrated the association between the stromal neovascularization and the residual interlamellar hemorrhage, as well as phagocytosis of residual hemosiderin by macrophages. CONCLUSION: Intracorneal hematoma with spontaneous resolution has been documented clinically and histopathologically in an eye with Mooren ulceration.
