Adherent leukoma and epithelial inclusion cyst after penetrating trauma
Photographer: Brice Critser, CRA; Randy Verdick, FOPS
The cystic nature of the mass can be seen on B-scan echography.
The wound was found to be Seidel positive and a mini-penetrating keratoplasty (mini-PKP), was performed. The iris cyst was later aspirated and ethanol was injected into the capsule to prevent regrowth.
The patient has maintained 20/25 acuity postoperatively with minimal regrowth of the cyst.
