Abstract

Purpose

To report endothelial corneal graft rejection after administration of topical latanoprost eye drops.

Case report

Two eyes of two patients with a history of multiple intraocular procedures prior to penetrating keratoplasty developed endothelial graft rejection one month after administration of topical latanoprost. Cystoid macular edema developed simultaneously in one patient.

Conclusion

Latanoprost may trigger endothelial graft rejection in susceptible eyes.
