We report a case of a patient with a history of glomerulonephropathy, not disclosed prior to laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), who developed severe postoperative peripheral ulcerative keratitis (PUK) soon after surgery.

Case Report
A 29-year-old Filipino woman with contact lens intolerance presented for refractive surgery evaluation. She had been seen elsewhere for episodes of acute red eye and irritation and had been noted to have peripheral corneal infiltrates, attributed to contact lens overwear. She only reported a history of alopecia areata.
