Adult-onset axial myopia is uncommon in comparison with the lenticular myopia. When we dealt with a case of the infectious scleral ulceration, the progressive myopic shift was not only due to the dense nuclear sclerosis but also due to the longer axial length. The elongating axis became shortened after 3-months follow up. Then the patient underwent uneventful cataract surgery. However, the reversal process persisted even after the operation. Although the pathogenesis is not well known, we concluded that the cataract surgery in dealt with the complicated cataract should be delayed in the cases with any inflammation or the axial changes.
