Problems such as graft edema, corneoscleral dellen, and epithelial inclusion cysts infrequently occur. Corneal astigmatism, Tenon's granuloma, retraction and/or necrosis of the graft, and muscular disinsertion are even less frequently encountered. Limbal-conjunctival autograft for recalcitrant recurrent cases is proposed. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
