Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of corneal ectasia secondary to pars planitis corneal endotheliopathyMethods: Clinical case description and proposed hypothesis regarding development of corneal ectasiaResults: Eight-year-old male presented with 360° peripheral corneal endotheliopathy and edema, granulomatous keratic precipitates, and mild iritis OD. A progressive corneal ectasia then developed. Twenty months later, OS presented similarly and anterior chamber inflammatory cells, vitreous snowballs, and retinal vasculitis were observed OU. Classic pars planitis was diagnosedConclusion: This is the first case of endotheliopathy as the first manifestation of pars planitis and as a cause of a secondary central cornea ectasia developed © 2010 The Author(s).
