Abstract Details


To report a case of extensive corneal neovascularization that was treated by ultraviolet corneal collagen crosslinking


Ophthalmology Department An-Najah National University Hospital Nablus- West Bank- Palestine


Case Report


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.


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