Abstract Details


To describe the disastrous course of a Fusarium keratitis in a healthy contact lens wearing woman after a trauma.


Admission to our hospital on day 17 from the onset to day 79: the day the eye was enucleated.


Description of all medical and surgical treatment in the course of the Fusarium keratitis.


The keratitis was untreatable since the fungus was totally resistant to any anti-fungal drug. Eventually the eye was enucleated.


A decision to perform a keratoplasty should be taken earlier when a fungus is the cause of a keratitis, especially when the infiltrate is already located deep within the cornea and is spreading. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
