The authors present a case of a young girl who developed scleromalacia after she had been hit in her eye by a pine cone. Neither past ocular insult, nor any medication taken on a regular basis were reported. On medical workup, no systemic disease or any sign of such a disease was found. In the absence of known predisposing factors for scleromalacia, the authors suggest the trauma as being the only reason for the development of scleromalacia and discuss possible mechanisms for this process.
