Purpose: To present a case of allergic corneal ulcer in a patient with atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC) that was persistent for 6 months and healed by amniotic membrane patching. Case Report: A 27-year-old male patient with a corneal ulcer associated with AKC persistent for 6 months despite conventional treatment underwent amniotic membrane patching. On removal of the amniotic membrane patch after 1 week, the corneal ulcer that had been persistent for 6 months had healed completely. Conclusion: We experienced a case with corneal ulcer that was persistent for 6 months and healed dramatically within 1 week with improved vision and corneal clarity. In such severe and persistent cases requiring rapid epithelialization, amniotic membrane should be considered as an adjunct to conventional therapy.
