To report two cases of successful acellular dermal allograft transplantation for scleromalacia following pterygium excision. CASE SUMMARY: A 72-year-old female patient developed scleromalacia on the nasal side of the right eye, and a 79-year-old female patient developed scleromalacia with inflammation on the nasal side of the left eye. They had previous histories of pterigia removal on the sites of scleromalacia. Acellular dermal allograft (AlloDerm(R), Lifecell, NJ, USA) transplantations were done. After the operations, inflammation and pain ameliorated and the grafts survived without any particular complications. CONCLUSIONS: In treating scleromalacia, the transplantation of acellular dermal allografts produced relatively satisfactory results without undesirable problems commonly encountered when using conventional materials.
Key Words: AlloDerm(R);Scleromalacia
