Five Cases of Corneal Graft Rejection After Recent COVID-19 Vaccinations and a Review of the Literature
Conclusions: Corneal graft rejection has recently been reported after COVID-19 vaccination. Patients with keratoplasty need to be advised regarding the risk of corneal graft rejection and warning symptoms of rejection after COVID-19 vaccination. Seeking early referral to the emergency department and increasing topical steroids pre–COVID-19 and post–COVID-19 vaccination may reduce the risk of rejection. (Source: Cornea)

Comparison of Donor Corneal Endothelial Cell Density Determined by Eye Banks and by a Central Image Analysis Reading Center Using the Same Image Analysis Method
Conclusions: Well-trained eye bank technicians achieve comparable results for ECD determination with an experienced image analyst from an image analysis reading center when the same image analysis method is used. (Source: Cornea)

Immunization-Associated Corneal Transplantation Rejection: A Review
Conclusions: Immunization-associated corneal graft rejection is a rare but likely underreported phenomenon. Patients and surgeons should be aware of this possible risk, although the evidence is inconclusive. Conclusions are limited because of the small sample size and the retrospective nature of all existing literature on this subject. Surgeons should be encouraged to document and report these episodes.

Corneal Neurotization Using the Great Auricular Nerve for Bilateral Congenital Trigeminal Anesthesia
Conclusions: Using the GAN technique for CN bypasses trigeminal innervation and has the potential to improve corneal sensation. The GAN is a large caliber nerve and provides a large amount of axons and robust neurotization. This technique would be desirable for cases with bilateral congenital trigeminal anesthesia, such as pontine tegmental cap dysplasia. (Source: Cornea)

“Smoldering” Rejection of Keratolimbal Allograft
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to report a case of “smoldering” keratolimbal allograft (KLAL) rejection in a patient with subtherapeutic levels of systemic immunosuppression in temporal association with BNT162b2 messenger RNA vaccination for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. Methods: This was a case report. Observations: A 72-year-old man presented with circumferential perilimbal engorgement, stagnation, and tortuosity of vessels with mild chemosis in his right eye KLAL segments 1 month after receiving the BNT162b2 messenger RNA vaccine while his tacrolimus trough blood levels w...

Recurrence of Varicella-Zoster Virus Keratitis After SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination
Conclusions: We believe that this is the first report of possible association between recurrence of VZV keratitis and SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. We believe that T-cell activation by the host response after vaccination may affect the recurrence of VZV keratitis. Physicians should be aware of the potential of recurrence of VZV keratitis associated with the SARS-CoV-2 messenger RNA vaccine. (Source: Cornea)

Topical Nerve Growth Factor for the Treatment of Neurotrophic Keratopathy Caused by Wallenberg Syndrome
Conclusions: Clinicians should be aware that visual loss can also occur from NK of central origin. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of NK caused by WS successfully treated with rNGF reported in the literature. (Source: Cornea)

Corneal Sarcoidosis: Diffuse Stromal Granulomatous Inflammation in a Patient With Sarcoidosis
Conclusions: We present the histopathological evidence of sarcoidosis involving the corneal stroma. Interestingly, the stromal keratitis also subsequently involved the donor cornea tissue after the patient underwent a keratoprosthesis implantation. It seems that sarcoidosis is a rare cause of stromal keratitis. (Source: Cornea)

Central Toxic Keratopathy in Siblings After Laser-Assisted Keratomileusis: Case Report and Literature Review
Conclusions: CTK is a rare, noninflammatory but potentially sight-threatening entity most commonly associated with excimer laser ablation procedures. Its pathophysiology is poorly understood but likely multifactorial. Its isolated presentation in this case of 2 siblings suggests a possible underlying genetic predisposition, which has not been previously described. With careful monitoring and early supportive treatment, patients can have a complete and rapid resolution. (Source: Cornea)

KeraKlear Artificial Cornea Implantation Assisted by Femtosecond Laser in Eyes With Aniridia
Conclusions: KeraKlear nonpenetrating artificial corneas represent a promising alternative to keratolimbal allografts and Boston keratoprosthesis for the treatment of aniridia-associated keratopathy. (Source: Cornea)

Chronic Ocular Sequelae and Subsequent Surgical Interventions in Stevens–Johnson Syndrome After Amniotic Membrane Transplantation
Conclusions: Successful AMT was performed twice within the first week of ocular involvement in the acute phase of SJS. Chronic ocular sequelae affecting the eyelid margin were identified during the chronic phase and were successfully treated with eyelid margin MMG. Necessity for the close follow-up and the need for subsequent interventions to maintain visual acuity should be explained to patients after acute SJS with ocular involvement. (Source: Cornea)

Acute Keratoconjunctivitis Resulting From Coinfection With Avian Newcastle Virus and Human Adenovirus
Conclusions: Newcastle conjunctivitis has not been reported for more than 40 years. Mixed infections, including zoonotic pathogens, may be more common than realized. (Source: Cornea)
