Abstract

: A 10-year-old boy with Cockayne's syndrome had an aseptic perforation centered in a corneal opacity of the right eye. Exposure keratitis, which was caused by anhidrosis, loss of blinking, and lack of Bell's phenomenon, was considered responsible for this condition. A therapeutic soft contact lens was applied to heal the corneal wound.
