Abstract Details


To assess outcomes of fungal keratitis after endothelial keratoplasty


Adverse Reactions reported to the Midwest Eye Bank Midwest Eyebanks, Michigan Eye Bank. 4889 Venture Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48108, USA


Eight of ten cases were donor-related keratitis. Nine were reported as an infectious keratitis and one as endophthalmitis with nine cases occurring after DSAEK and one after DMEK surgery. Diagnosis of fungal keratitis was made with an average of 66 days after surgery and almost all cases were due to Candida species. Only one recipient had clinical treatment with success. Four recipients underwent PKP, four underwent repeat DSAEK, and one was enucleated. During the follow-up, two recipients had recurrence of infection. One was treated clinically and the other one underwent PKP. None of mate tissue had adverse reaction reported.


Repeat DSAEK after fungal keratitis may provide favorable outcomes and reduce need for penetrating keratoplasty.
