A Clinical Case from the Archives : 16/08/2004

This five year old male neutered cat has developed a striking corneal lesion with vascularisation and white deposit. What is the conditon and what is the optimal treatment?

This cat has eosinophikic keratitis. Treatment is difficult with topical streroid three times daily being unsuccessful and parenteral megoestrol acetate have little effect. Surgical removal by superficial keratectomy was used here with steroid treatment given to prevent recurrece of the lesion.
