An 18-year-old girl who had undergone deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty in her left eye for keratoconus a year back presented with inferonasal graft dehiscence with intact host Descemet's membrane and intact anterior chamber after sustaining blunt injury a week prior. The graft was sutured to the host bed, and complete resolution of graft edema was seen in 4 weeks. One year later, she underwent cataract surgery with foldable intraocular lens implantation. At her final follow-up, the best-corrected visual acuity in her left eye was 20/40 with a clear corneal graft and a stable posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation.
