Case 5 presentation

by Dr. Philipp Franko Zeitz, Düsseldorf, Germany

Categories: cornea, photo quiz

Key problem: unusual finding of uncertain importance 

In contrast to other case reports, we present expert-level cases without an unambiguous solution: A case report with a solution will only add more encyclopedic knowledge to Your repertoire, while an open-ended case report will train Your methods. Therefore each case highlights a specific problem expressed in the introduction.We won’t offer the satisfying feeling of solving a puzzle correctly, but something more valuable: You will train Your skills by developing proper methods for “how to proceed” and You will help others to train their skills by giving them your perspective.

Don´t be afraid to send Your opinion even if You do not feel safe. It’s meant to be tough and You may stay anonymous, if You wish so.
