Abstract

In this case report, it is aimed to present the clinical findings and treatment of a 9-year-old girl who developed bilateral acute corneal hydrops (ACH) at short intervals. Our patient first presented with ACH findings first the right eye and then 1 month later in her left eye. At first admission, both visual acuities were at very low levels and she had advanced stage keratoconus. The patient had a history of eye rubbing accompanied by mild to moderate allergic conjunctivitis. Corneal cross-linking treatment was planned for the left eye, but it could not be performed due to the rapid development of ACH in the left eye within 1 month. In cases of advanced keratoconus accompanied by eye rubbing in young children, caution should be exercised in case it progresses to bilateral ACH.
