Objective: The objective of this study is to restore the biology of the ocular surface in a case of total limbal insufficiency Material & Methods: Patient who had a serious limb burn causing corneal and conjunctival alteration (opacification) and upper left eyelid cicatricial entropion were considered for this study. Results: There was a mild improvement of visual acuity and clear reduction of symptoms such as pruritus, tearing, foreign body sensation and itching. The cornea was restored, with a resulting homogenous and transparent surface. Conclusions: The technique that was described achieves normalization of the ocular surface, with acceptable corneal transparency and epithelialization from the â�?�?substitute limbusâ�?, the stem cell provider.
