Purpose and Methods: We report a case in which, although we planned to perform a penetrating keratoplasty for corneal stromal opacity with normal corneal endothelium, the host's Descemet's membrane became inadvertently detached and the operation resulted in double anterior chamber deep lamellar keratoplasty (DLKP).

Result: After surgery, the patient's corrected visual acuity was 20/30.

Conclusion: Double anterior chamber DLKP is safe and valuable.
