Surgical Management of Pediatric Limbal Dermoid
Abstract: Limbal dermoids are choristomas known as congenital benign tumors found in abnormal locations. Despite the benign nature, enlarging limbal dermoids may cause visual abnormalities by cornea infiltration with fat component, visual axis invasion, gradually induced corneal astigmatism, and finally result in anisometropic amblyopia. Here we report a rare case of progressive pediatric corneal limbal dermoid in a 8 year old girl managed with corneo scleral graft.
Keywords: dermoid, corneal limbal dermoid; pediatric
