Abstract

The paper describes the occurrence of unilateral paracentral corneal melting in a 65-year-old woman with ocular and systemic signs of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada's syndrome (VKH), psoriasis, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Corneal melting, often occurring in association with systemic vasculitis and connective tissue diseases, has rarely been reported in relation to diffuse psoriasis and never in association with VKH. A possible relationship between corneal melting and VKH is suggested.
