Case Report

Results:

A 24 year old man referred to our cornea clinic as a case of keratitis. He was treated with topical antibiotics. After full resolution of keratitis, his condition was complicated by extensive corneal neovascularization. A trial of photochemical corneal collagen cross-linking with Riboflavin / Ultraviolet A resulted in a dramatic improvement and resolution of the corneal neovascularization.

Conclusions:

Corneal collagen crosslinking could be a promising procedure to treat certain cases of extensive corneal neovascularization
