Abstract

Corneal allograft rejection is known to have many risk factors, including ocular infection and inflammation. Although not reported in the literature, local nonocular inflammation may also have the ability to incite a graft reaction. We report 2 cases, one with dental inflammation and the other with a facial abscess, with simultaneous corneal transplant rejection. Possible pathophysiology and a review of the literature are given.
