Cases Network – Image of the month

We have been running the feature ‘Image of the month’ on our facebook site for some time and now we are expanding to include these images on our blog site.

Every month we select an image from Cases Journal or the Journal of Medical Case Reports (JMCR) that we feel is that little bit extra special.

Below is our choice for this month:

Spontaneous corneal melting during pregnancy: a case report

Spontaneous corneal melting during pregnancy: a case report

This figure shows the split lamp appearance of both eyes of a patient in the midterm of pregnancy.

Although the underlying mechanisms remain to be clarified, this case report demonstrates that physiological changes during pregnancy might lead to devastating corneal complications, such as corneal melting, in high-risk women with compromised corneas.

For all the clinical details, read the full case report here.

Title: “Spontaneous corneal melting during pregnancy: a case report”
