Corneal Neovascularization Summary

Description: New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.

Also Known As: Angiogenesis, Corneal; Corneal Neovascularizations; Neovascularization, Corneal; Neovascularizations, Corneal; Corneal Angiogenesis
