Autohaemotherapy in simple terms means injecting patients own blood parenterally. In the present study this method was found to be effective in treatment of rapidly occurring corneal opacity due to unknown causes in caprines. The technique followed throughout this work was intramuscular injection of freshly drawn whole blood. Opacity of cornea got cleared completely. This may be due to the immune-stimulatory effect produced due to autohaemotherapy. This method is preferable as it is simple, safe and economical compared to the other conventional approaches. This might be an alternative method in the field.
