Keratomalacia on a 'healthy diet'.

Olver J.

The case is described of a 39-year-old man with previously undiagnosed chronic schizophrenia and with bilateral keratomalacia secondary to his bizarre diet. He presented with a perforation of the right cornea which required an emergency penetrating keratoplasty. The difficulties of clinical management of a patient with an overt psychosis and the use of serum retinol levels to monitor treatment are described. Causes of vitamin A deficiency seen in Great Britain are discussed.
