Corneal vascularization post Steven-Johnson's syndrome

Photo by Professor Chua Chung Nen

This 50 year-old woman developed Steven-Johnson's syndrome due to drug allergy 2 years ago. The cornea showed scarring and plaques with neovascularization. The appearance suggested stem cell deficiency. However, the vision remained good at 6/12 and she refused any surgical interventions. Currently, she is on topical steroid and artificial tear.


Left calcified plaque and neovascularization. Despite the lesion, the patient can see 6/12.
