The diagnosis of a corneal keloid should be suspected in any case of a protuberant corneal mass with a past history of a perforating wound or surgical trauma. A corneal biopsy may confirm the diagnosis, and in selected cases where there is complete corneal involvement by the keloid, a sclerokeratoplasty can be performed as an alternative procedure to enucleation to preserve the globe and allow useful vision.
