This 22 year-old complained of decreased right vision. The visual acuity was light perception. Examination revealed corneal melt with bulging iris covered by descemete membrane (descemetocele). The cause of the corneal melt was unknown and the patient was otherwise well. A penetrating keratoplasty was performed which unfortunately became vascularized.
