Pseudopterygia are the advancement of the conjunctiva onto the corneal surface in the setting of active or old ocular surface inflammation. Pterygia and pseudopterygia are exceptional conditions in children.[1] We report a case of a 3-year-old child with a visually significant bilateral double-headed pseudopterygium, which developed following pediatric cataract surgery. The child was managed with pseudopterygium excision with conjunctival autograft and amniotic membrane grafting followed by visual rehabilitation.
