Ocular perforating is the most dreaded scenario to confront in patients with scleromalacia perforans. Despite its low prevalence, the progression of scleral necrosis to exposed uvea represents one of the ophthalmic emergencies with a high risk of loss of ocular content whose surgical treatment is performed autologous or heterologous tissue patches. This study describes six patients referred to the ophthalmology service of the Edgardo Rebagliati Martins National Hospital in Lima with a clinic history of autoimmune diseases and scleromalacia perforans >10 mm size, treated with autologous fascia lata grafting in addition to topical and systemic immunosuppressive treatment.
