Cyclosporine 0.1% was used in a patient with Lyell syndrome, which had undergone a KeraKlear® keratoprosthesis implant due to the severe ocular involvement to avoid overuse of corticoid agents. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of cyclosporine 0.1% eye drops to use in Lyell syndrome previously treated with keratoprosthesis implant.
