Acute hydrops is very rarely reported in the setting of Mooren's ulcer. Our patient with bilateral Mooren's ulcer, being managed with immunomodulation, presented with sudden decrease in vision in the left eye, and was diagnosed to have acute hydrops with a type1 non-rhegmatogenous pre-Descemet's layer and Descemet's membrane detachment.(DMD) Her corneal stromal edema resolved with conservative management and she regained a vision of 20/80 following cataract surgery, with an evident persistent DMD and a clear cornea.
