Abstract

We present two cases of women who suffered from neurotrophic keratopathy (one of them had undergone penetrating keratoplasty) which had led to corneal thinning. Tachosil® was used as an adjuvant treatment after topical medication by itself failed in both cases. To our knowledge, there are no reported cases of the use of Tachosil® in corneal grafts.
