Resumo To report a case of recurrent Thygeson's superficial punctate keratitis (SPK) in a patient submitted to photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in one eye and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in the fellow eye.DESIGN: Observational case report.METHODS: A 32,year-old woman was diagnosed with Thygeson's SPK 5 years before undergoing PRK on the right eye and LASIK on the left eye to correct -3.00 + 1.50 X 20 and -3.75 sph, respectively.RESULTS: the patient presented with recurrence of Thygeson's SPK in the left eye 10 months after the LASIK procedure and no recurrence on the right eye, which was treated with PRK.CONCLUSIONS: This case report suggests that PRK may be a better option than LASIK in patients with ocular history of Thygeson's SPK. However, no strong conclusion can be established until further studies confirm the hypothesis of a lower recurrence rate of Thygeson's SPK following PRK compared with LASIK. (C) 2004 by Elsevier Inc.
