Optom Vis Sci. 2013 Jan;90(1):e9-10

PURPOSE: To describe a very common corneal pathology in a patient with Kindler syndrome.
CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 21-year-old woman, who presented to the Ophthalmology Department as an emergency presentation because of ocular pain in the left eye that radiated to other areas of the face and neck. After an exhaustive clinical interview, it was determined that the patient had a rare disease (Kindler syndrome). Ophthalmologic examination revealed corneal erosion on the left eye. No other significant conditions were found. After the application of conventional treatment, the corneal integrity was completely restored.
CONCLUSIONS: We describe a very rare syndrome. Although conventional treatment restored corneal integrity, it is important to remember that ocular signs and symptoms are often associated with systemic pathologies.
