Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is often the surgery of choice in patients with advanced keratoconus. Corneal hydrops post-DALK is a rare occurrence with only one case reported so far, where the patient eventually underwent a penetrating keratoplasty due to failure of Descemet's membrane reattachment. Here, we present a case of a ten-year-old boy who had corneal hydrops 18 months post uneventful DALK with spontaneous resolution. Late corneal hydrops post DALK with spontaneous resolution is rare and has not been reported so far.
