Amnion, the innermost layer of the placental sac, can be harvested as graft material. It has several mechanisms of action. There are three types of this AM fresh, cryoconserved and dehydrated. The dehydrated Amniotic Membrane is the type used in our observations. We report two cases the first one a 70 years old patient with bullous keratopathy and the second one a 65 years old patient with a diffuse epithelial defect in whom the dehydrated amniotic membrane graft gave good results The effectiveness of dehydrated membrane grafting has been demonstrated in several studies but a larger study is needed to confirm its effectiveness.
