We report a 16-year-old female patient with diagnosis of xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), previously treated for simultaneous conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma in the right eye (OD) and conjunctival melanoma in the left eye (OS), showing progressive keratoconus during follow-up. Considering the risk of cross-linking treatment due to UV exposure in XP patients, an intrastromal corneal ring segment was implanted in the right eye. The patient was fitted with mini-scleral lenses that would promote corneal lubrication and provide the patient with better visual acuity than glasses. The patient has been followed-up for 1 year with no tumor recurrence and good vision.
