Abstract

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.

Key words: Partial penetrating keratoplasty, Pupillary fibrin membrane, Streptokinase
