Corneal perforation with secondary congenital aphakia in Peters anomaly.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
PURPOSE: To describe two cases of secondary congenital aphakia in association with Peters anomaly. METHODS: Two infants were noted to have corneal opacification at birth. Each child was found to have Peters anomaly requiring corneal transplantation in 1 or both eyes. RESULTS: Each child underwent penetrating keratoplasty, revealing absence of the crystalline lens in 1 eye. Histopathologic evaluation of the corneal buttons was performed. Each specimen showed full-thickness corneal defects with lens remnants. CONCLUSIONS: Secondary congenital aphakia from corneal perforation should be considered in the presentation of severe Peters anomaly.
