Abstract

PURPOSE. TO clarify the usefulness of multilayer amniotic membrane transplantation in an unusual case of calcareous corneal degeneration in a patientwith graft-versus-host disease. METHODS. A 20-year-old Caucasian woman had bilateral calcareous corneal degeneration of one year of evolution, secondary to graft-versus-host disease. Treatment for both eyes with topical steroids and antibiotic ointment wasnot successful. Right eye had a spontaneous corneal perforation, and a three-layer circle amniotic membrane graft was applied to the whole cornea. RESULTS. During a follow-up period of 20 months we observed stability of the corneal epithelium and stroma. The amniotic membrane-covered area showedrapid epithelization, reduced inflammation and suppressed fibrosis formation. CONCLUSIONS. Multilayer amniotic membrane transplantation may be considered an alterantive for reconstructing the ocular surface in a patient with severe dry eyes and calcareous corneal degeneration, even with little perforation.
