Abstract

In eight patients having intracorneal cysts with epithelial lining, three had known trauma in their history, but it is possible that the remainder of the cysts also were of a traumatic origin. The progression was generally slow over several years. If the central cornea becomes involved, either peripheral marsupialization, chemical cautery, or a combination of the two procedures is indicated.
