In an eye that has undergone partial penetrating keratoplasty (PPK) due to Central corneal opacity and vascularization due to herpetic¬†stromal keratitis, an excessive pupillary fibrin membrane developed postoperatively. Since there was no regression in the pupillary¬†membrane during four days follow-up period, streptokinase was injected into the anterior chamber and the pupillary fibrin membrane¬†resolved totally in two days. In this case report, the efficacy of streptokinase in the treatment of refractory pupillary fibrin membrane¬†is discussed.
