EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology

*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.
PKC (phlyctenular keratoconjunctivis):
a classic example in a patient at the Eye Clinic in India in 1968.
PKC is becoming rare as public health problems are ameliorated. In 1968 when this photo was taken by Dr. Caccamise in his eye clinic in India, PKC was generally attributed to tbc - thus, the synonym conjunctivitis srofulosa.
