Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of bilateral Urrets-Zavalia syndrome (UZS) after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). Methods: Case report. Results: A 61-year-old patient with Fuchs endothelial dystrophy initially developed UZS in the left eye after DSAEK. Thirteen months later, she underwent combined cataract surgery and DSAEK in the right eye, and postoperatively she was noted to have elevated intraocular pressure and a fixed and dilated pupil on the first postoperative day. Both pupils showed partial improvement in reactivity over the course of weeks to months. This is the first case of bilateral UZS after DSAEK surgery and in a patient with Fuchs dystrophy. Conclusions: UZS may occur bilaterally after DSAEK. Because elevated intraocular pressure has been shown to be a risk factor for this condition, this should be monitored closely during the postoperative period.
