Resumo

Superficial corneal lesions heal rapidly, without needing treatment, once the underlying cause has been identified and removed. However, a chronic stimulus may cause pigment deposits or formation of an exuberant granulation tissue. It reports a case of corneal ulcer in a dog, which during the therapy developed exuberant granulation tissue by the continuous abrasion of synthetic monofilament suture wire on the corneal surface. At the first moment was performed third eyelid flap and topical therapy, requiring full-time protective collar use and return at day 2 and 10 after surgery. The owner returned after 15 days of the surgical procedure reporting no use of the protective collar. The ophthalmic evaluation detected discreet exposure of the eye bulb and contact of surgical thread with the cornea. After removing the flap was observed the presence of an exacerbated granular tissue and prescribed the use of ocular corticosteroids associated with cyclosporine. After 15 days of treatment the cornea showed discrete macula.
