“…Intracystic injection of saline, ethanol, or mitomycin-C have been effective in some instances to stop growth and promote involution of cysts. 13 , 14 , 15 Lasers, combined with intracystic injections, can further facilitate the destruction and shrinkage of the cyst epithelial wall.…”

“…The tissue involved should be excised carefully because a delicate layer of cells overgrows the trabecular meshwork and the iris (Naumann, ). Some authors have described the injection of alcohol into the cystic lesion (Behrouzi and Khodadoust, ; Hong et al, ). Unfortunately, even repeated alcohol injection might not destroy all epithelial layers of the cyst and it can damage the endothelial cells (Al‐Sariji et al, ).…”

“…In 2002, Shaikh and colleagues 10 reported the use of 5-fluorouracil mixed with viscoelastic material to successfully treat a case of postsurgical epithelial downgrowth. In 2005, Yu and associates 11 described an iris stromal cyst that responded to intralesional administration of mitomycin C. In 2013, Hong et al 12 reported a case of posttrau- matic iris stromal cyst that was managed by ethanol irrigation, with cyst collapse at the last follow-up visit at 16 months. The largest series published to date on sclerosing agents for iris cysts was by Behrouzi and Khodadoust 6 in 2003, in which they reviewed treatment of 99 eyes with intracystic ethanol irrigation.…”
