Phenothiazine deposits in corneo and lens



Phenothiazine deposits in corneo and lens



Medical Journal of Malaysia 56(1): 92-94



Phenothiazines have been associated with various ocular adverse effects, in particular cataract and corneal deposits. Several effects are vision threatening. Awareness of these effects, in particular by Psychiatrists and Ophthalmologist, is essential for prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment. We report two patients presented to us with corneal deposits and lenticular opacities following long term use of Phenothiazines.
