Two months after cataract surgery, subconjuctival would gaping developed in our patients as a result of trauma and was resutured. Subsequently, corneal edema and a retrocorneal membrane were noticed. During penetrating keratoplasty, a thick fibrous membrane was found growing from the posterior corneal surface into the anterior and posterior chambers. Histopathologic studies revealed fibrous down-growth from the corneal stroma through a gap in Descemet's layer, forming a retrocorneal membrane.
