[Keratoconus in children with retinopathy of prematurity (clinical cases)].

[Article in Russian]


2 cases of keratoconus in children with retinopathy of prematurity (RP) developed in eyes with severe retinal scarring as an outcome of RP, but initially clear cornea and normal anterior chamber depth. In one case keratoconus was acute and resulted in visual loss in the only seeing eye and required surgical treatment. In another case kertoconus developed in the eye with residual light perception, had no subjective symptoms, was not acute and was stabilized using nonsurgical treatment.
