To report on a new application of intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a real-time imaging tool to help guide corneal biopsy.
Single case report. After the negative result of a corneal biopsy, we used intraoperative OCT during repeat biopsy to assist in depth and acquisition of an anterior stromal opacity suspected to be immunoglobulin deposits.
The use of intraoperative OCT is a novel tool, which assisted in successful identification and conservative biopsy of corneal immunoglobulin deposits.
Intraoperative OCT is a novel tool that assists in the identification and location of corneal pathology for biopsy.
