Abstract

A 68-year-old lady presented with irritation in left eye of one-week duration. Examination of her left eye revealed loose corneoscleral sutures with corneal vascularization and white deposit in the cornea in front of the blood vessels. She underwent laser photocoagulation but later developed necrotizing scleritis. We report a rare complication of necrotizing scleritis following laser photocoagulation of the corneal new vessels.
