Purpose: To report a rare case of spontaneous corneal perforation after hydrops in keratoconus patients who suffer from familial Mediterranean fever and was treated systemically with Colchicine. Methods: Case report. Results: We report a case of a 30-year-old male with keratoconus and familial Mediterranean fever treated with colchicine, presented with acute hydrops in his left eye, which progressed to a spontaneous corneal perforation. Attempts to treat the perforation with cyanoacrylate glue failed, and he underwent penetrating keratoplasty with an excellent visual outcome. Conclusion: Colchicine treatment may have had a role in the pathogenesis of this rare case.
- Corneal perforation
