Neurotrophic keratopathy (NK) is a rare degenerative corneal disease caused by an impairment of trigeminal corneal innervations, leading to a decrease or absence of corneal sensation, impaired healing, persistent epithelial defect and neurotrophic ulcers. It is associated with many ocular and systemic diseases. Management of NK is challenging. Meticulous management is necessary to halt its progression and prevent corneal complications such as melting and perforation. Many modalities have been stated in the literature for the treatment of neurotrophic corneal ulcer. Herein, we report a case of NK, refractive to conservative treatment which was treated successfully with 20% autologous serum eye drops.
