Clinical examination, light and transmission electron microscopy was performed. The study was focused on how permanent scar tissue formed. Following the penetrating alkali injury, all cells (epithelium, keratocytes and endothelium) in the wound area disappeared. The fibroblasts/keratocytes repopulated an extensively swollen central… CONTINUE READING
