Abstract

A 15-year-old male patient with corneal hydrops and a giant intrastromal cleft (pseudocyst) successfully received medical treatment with topical prednisolone, hypertonic saline solution and ocular hypotensive eyedrops. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used as an auxiliary tool for assessing the response to treatment during follow-up time (33 months).
