Abstract

A patient presented with central corneal scarring and neovascularization associated with elevated deposits that were shown to be keratin and calcium. Giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC) was noted at a corresponding location in the palpebral conjunctiva. The lid reaction resolved after the elevated corneal deposits were debrided. A rigid gas-permeable contact lens was then fitted for visual rehabilitation. Either foreign bodies or elevated corneal deposits may cause GPC.
