Abstract: We report the dramatic ophthalmological findings in a newborn baby consisting of a perforated right eye and a protruding buphthalmic opacified left eye. The diagnosis of congenital corneal staphyloma was suspected and was confirmed on histopathological examination of the right eye remnants, and of the left cornea after a corneoscleral keratoplasty was performed. This case report describes one clinical spectrum of Peter's anomaly.
