Cell Death. Mitomycin is cytotoxic. Use of mitomycin in concentrations higher than 0.2 mg/mL or use for longer than 2 minutes may lead to unintended corneal and/or sclera damage including thinning or perforation. Direct contact with the corneal endothelium will result in cell death. Hypotony. The use of mitomycin has been associated with an increased instance of post-operative hypotony. Cataract Development. Use in phakic patients has been correlated to a higher instance of lenticular change and cataract formation.
The most frequent adverse reactions to Mitosol® occur locally and include hypotony, hypotony maculopathy, blebitis, endophthalmitis, vascular reactions, corneal reactions, and cataract. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit MedWatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
