Case Report


Eye trauma from a cat scratch with retention of the claw in the anterior chamber in a dog

Thomas Dulaurent, Laure Steun, Pierre-François Isard.


Abstract
Background:
Cat scratches and ocular foreign bodies are frequent reasons for consultation in veterinary ophthalmology.
Case Description:
We here present an unusual case combining trauma to the cornea and lens by a cat scratch with retention of the claw in the anterior chamber. Management consisted of removal of the claw, reconstruction of the cornea, and mechanized ablation of the lens by phacoemulsification with implantation of an artificial lens.
Conclusion:
The progression during the follow-up period was considered satisfactory, with positive responses to visual tests and intraocular pressure within the norms. Only dyscoria and a tear of the endothelium and Descemet membrane, secondary to the trauma, remained.

Key words: Claw, Cornea, Endothelium, Lens, Wound
