Keloids are benign proliferations of fibrovascular tissue. Keloids involving the cornea, although rare, have been reported in a wide range of age groups, especially in the first 2 decades of life. These are bulky lesions commonly seen secondary to trauma and surgery. A 68-year-old female presented with a whitish mass in her left eye, associated with diminution of vision, foreign body sensation and watering. This was preceded by a history of small incision cataract surgery (SICS). She underwent excision of the lesion, with a scleral patch graft and conjunctival autograft. The mass was confirmed to be a keloid on histopathologic examination. Here, we report this unique case of post SICS corneal keloid.
