Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy of combined surgery of simple excision, and bowman membrane transplant in paediatric patients with grade 1 and grade 2 limbal dermoids.


Upgraded department of Ophthalmology, SMS Medical college, JAIPUR


We treated 2 eyes of 2 patients with combined surgery of limbal dermoid excision with bowman membrane tuck in with limbal reconstruction with auto SLET . Preoperative and postoperative visual acuity, postoperative recovery time, cosmetic improvements, patient compliance, and complication rates were reviewed.


The mean follow-up period in this study was 6 months months. Visual acuity was stable during the follow-up period. Resolution of patient discomfort and wound epithelialization was achieved in 2 week. Cosmetic outcomes improved in view of corneal opacity and conjunctival vascularization. All patients were satisfied with the cosmetic results with no complications.


Simple excision with bowman membrane transplant is an alternative and effective technique to treat gimbal demoid. It leads to a satisfactory cosmetic outcome, better compliance, and early postoperative recovery without complications for grade 1 and grade 2 limbal dermoids in pediatric patients.
