A 2-year-old girl was referred for management of swelling on the nasal side in the right eye. On ophthalmic examination, the right eye showed a subconjunctival cyst extending into the anterior corneal stroma on the nasal side. Ultrasound biomicroscopy of the right eye showed a fluid-filled cystic lesion involving the cornea, with no communication with the anterior chamber. Examination under anesthesia revealed an intrastromal sclerocorneal cyst over the nasal half of cornea, not involving pupillary axis. The cyst was drained, anterior cyst wall excised, scleral lips glued together, and the bare corneoscleral bed covered with amniotic membrane with no recurrence.
