Dermatography as a modern treatment for coloring leucoma corneae.

Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


Since antiquity many attempts were made and hence many methods were devised to minimize the disfiguration and stigmatization caused by leucoma corneae. Dermatography, a refined, modified tattooing technique, was used successfully in three cases of leucoma corneae. The materials and method are safe and simple. Over a 3-year follow-up period, no negative reactions were found. The cosmetic results were very satisfactory.
