Abstract

PURPOSE: To report on a new application of intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a real-time imaging tool to help guide corneal biopsy. METHODS: 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. RESULTS: The use of intraoperative OCT is a novel tool, which assisted in successful identification and conservative biopsy of corneal immunoglobulin deposits. CONCLUSIONS: Intraoperative OCT is a novel tool that assists in the identification and location of corneal pathology for biopsy.
