Abstract
Use of Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) has been reported in children for the treatment of postoperative endothelial decompensation and Descemet membrane break after forceps delivery. Rapid visual recovery and minimally induced postoperative astigmatism make DSAEK preferable to penetrating keratoplasty for the management of isolated endothelial disorders in this age group. We present a case of DSAEK in a 4-year-old boy for the management of irreversible endothelial rejection after penetrating keratoplasty. Three months after the procedure, the cornea remained clear with the donor button in place.
