Purpose: To report a case of intracameral injection of methotrexate (MTX) to treat the epithelial ingrowth that occurred following glaucoma surgery. Methods: A case report of a 40-year-old male with epithelial ingrowth after implantation of Ahmed glaucoma valve. Results: The patient was treated with 11 doses of weekly intracameral MTX (400 mg/0.1 ml). Clinical evidence of recurrence was not observed after 11 months of follow-up. Discussion: Intracameral MTX can be used as an alternative for the treatment of epithelial ingrowth.
