to report a case of indolent keratitis in an ADHD ( attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ) patient.
observational case report
review the clinical features of penetrating keratoplasty in an ADHD patient
a 5 year old boy with a large deep necrotic stromal keratitis was referred to us for corneal transplantation .deteriorated vision had a long course ( 7 month ) and the patient had received many antibacterial and anti-fungal drops. the recalcitrant , culture negative ulcer has undergone uneventful penetrating keratoplasty and 6 month later lens aspiration + pciol implantation . the cornea and IOL remain clear 3 month after 2nd surgery .
this case demonstrates the difficult course of medical treatment in an ADHD patient .Although an acceptable anatomical result is possible , however deep amblyopia may result in irreversible reduction of vision .
