Rights and Permissions

Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is the most common form of Porphyria, which is a group of metabolic disorders of haem biosynthesis characterized by the involvement of the skin, eyes, and neuro-visceral tissue. Although scleral thinning in the interpalpebral area is a well-documented feature, severe corneal involvement is rarely described. We, herein report a young male who presented with bilateral scleral thinning in the interpalpebral area and an anterior staphyloma in the right eye. Systemic examination was suggestive of PCT. We report the first case of PCT in literature successfully treated with autologous scleral patch graft.
