Abstract

We report a case of post-operative corneal epithelial toxicity following intra operative subconjunctival use of Mitomycin C for 1.5 minutes in twin site phacoemulsification and Trabeculectomy. Patient was doing well till 15 days after the surgery with the clear cornea and 20/20 vision. Then he noticed diminution of vision and cornea showed multiple punctate corneal erosion. On persistence of the lesion till five weeks after the surgery corneal scraping was done and sent for histopathological examination which showed Mitomycin related toxicity. With proper diagnosis and treatment patient improved well with a central clear cornea and vision 20/30. With guarded use and keen eye for possible complications in the follow-up visits one can avoid the undesirable and hazardous effects of MMC.
