Corneal persistent epithelial defects (PED) can occur due to various causes. In diffuse ocular surface disease, they often occur secondary to depletion of limbal stem cells.

This report highlights the encouraging results of limbal transplantation and reviews the literature in the management of PED with limbal stem cell loss.
