ABSTRACT
Calcification in patients with endstage renal disease on renal replacement therapy can occur in extraskeletal area such as conjunctiva and cornea. Conjunctival and corneal calcification(CCC) has mostly has been reported in adults with endstage renal disease on hemodialysis. CCC seems to be associated with the duration of renal replacement therapy, and high Ca$times$P value. We report a 10-year-old girl who was on peritoneal dialysis for 31 months and presented with CCC on both eyes. Her corneal calcification was resolved after the epithelial debridement and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid(EDTA) soaking therapy.
Key words: Calcification | Conjunctiva | Cornea | Endstage renal disease | Peritoneal dialysis | Children
