This paper reports a case of spontaneous Descemet's Membrane (DM ) detachment 20-years after penetrating keratoplasty (PK). The patient presented with acute onset blurred vision in the right eye associated with mild ocular discomfort. There was no prior history of trauma. The patient had undergone PK in the right eye 20 years back. Detailed ophthalmic examination showed best corrected visual acuity of hand movements close to face in the right eye and 20/80 in the left eye. The right eye showed diffuse graft edema but no congestion, epithelial defect, or loss of continuity of graft-host junction to suggest a traumatic etiology. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography showed DM break with a detachment in the right eye, which was treated with an intracameral C3F8 injection. DM break with detachment post-PK has been very sparsely reported in the literature and is an important differential to remember when faced with an edematous graft, in addition to the diagnosis of graft rejection or failure.
