Corneal endotheliitis and ocular surface neoplasia are known to be associated with altered immune status especially in the elderly. We reviewed an interesting case where endotheliitis occurred for the first time while on topical chemotherapy for ocular surface neoplasia in a patient with glaucoma. We have addressed the practical concerns in decision-making given multiple ocular comorbidities and highlighted a successful outcome with no recurrence of both the tumor and the endotheliitis for over 16 months.
