PURPOSE: To report a rare case of polymicrobial keratitis due to Balantidium coli and gram-negative bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae, in a soft contact lens (CL) wearer. METHODS: We report a case of CL-related keratitis due to B. coli, P. aeruginosa, and K. pneumoniae. RESULTS: The culture of the corneal scrapings, the CL cleaning solution, and the CL revealed the growth of a rare ciliated parasite, B. coli, along with gram-negative bacteria, namely, P...

AIMS: To report trends in antibiotic resistance in cases of bacterial keratitis from a large eye hospital in South India. METHODS: In this retrospective cross-sectional study, the microbiology laboratory records of patients with infectious keratitis diagnosed at an eye hospital in South India from 2002 to 2013 were reviewed to determine the proportion with antibiotic non-susceptibility. RESULTS: 3685 bacterial isolates had susceptibility testing performed over the 12-year period...

PURPOSE: Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) is a painful and potentially blinding corneal infection caused by Acanthamoeba spp. In Madrid, environmental studies have demonstrated a high presence of these free-living amoebae in tap water. Since most of AK cases occur in contact lenses (CL) wearers with inadequate hygiene habits, the presence of Acanthamoeba in discarded CL has been studied and compared with other common etiological agents of keratitis, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus...

The presence of keratoneuritis in a radial pattern is considered to be a virtually pathognomonic sign of Acanthamoeba keratitis. We report a case of a massive keratoneuritis as a presenting sign in Pseudomonas keratitis in a contact lens wearer, thereby further challenging this concept.

Introduction. In recent years, the number of contact lens wearers has dramatically increased in Iran, particularly in youngsters. The purpose of current study was to assess the clinical presentation and antibiotic susceptibility of contact lens related microbial keratitis in Ahvaz, southwest of Iran. Methodology. A cross-sectional investigation of 26 patients (33 eyes) with contact lens induced corneal ulcers who were admitted to Imam Khomeini Hospital, Ahwaz City, from June 2012 to June 2013 was done. In order to study microbial culture and susceptibility of corneal ulcers, all of them were scraped...

INTRODUCTION: Microbial keratitis is an infective process of the cornea with a potentially and serious visual impairments. Contact lenses are a major cause of microbial keratitis in the developed countries especially among young people. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to evaluate the frequency and microbiological characteristic of CLK in patients referred to the emergency department (ED) of teaching hospitals, Babol, Iran. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study of all patients with contact lens induced corneal ulcers admitted to the teaching hospitals of Babol, Iran, from 2011- 2013...

PURPOSE: To identify risk factors for multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MDR-PA) keratitis and to report clinical characteristics and outcomes of this infection. DESIGN: Retrospective, case-control study. PARTICIPANTS: Ninety episodes of P. aeruginosa keratitis from a tertiary care eye institution from 2007 through 2014 were identified. Episodes of MDR-PA keratitis were taken as cases. Episodes of drug-sensitive P. aeruginosa keratitis during the same period were taken as controls...

PURPOSE: To report the clinical and microbiological characteristics and treatment outcome of bacterial keratitis at a tertiary eye care center in eastern India. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of medical and microbiology records. METHODS: All patients had undergone complete clinical and microbiological evaluation for microbial keratitis. Patients with laboratory-proven bacterial keratitis were included in the study. RESULTS: Between July 2006 and December 2010, 1417 microbial keratitis was clinically diagnosed in the patients...

UNLABELLED: To report a case of bandage contact lens induced infectious keratitis caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa following DSAEK. CASE REPORT: A 56-year-old female who underwent DSAEK at our institute for pseudophakic bullous keratopathy, developed contact lens induced keratitis in the fifth post operative week. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) reduced to perception of light in the left eye. Slit lamp examination revealed an epithelial ulcer measuring 4.7mm×6mm with surrounding infiltrates in the anterior stroma with hypopyon...

BACKGROUND: To report a case of non-typical Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis that was misdiagnosed as fungal keratitis by in vivo confocal microscopy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 37-year-old Chinese woman presented with a 2-week history of increasing pain and redness of the right eye. She was started on hourly topical fortified tobramycin and levofloxacin by the referring doctor without improvement. She denied any improvement of her symptoms and signs. On examination, she had a large central corneal ulcer extending to the peripheral cornea...

AIM: To describe the infectious complications and the group of pathogens involved in the infection following corneal crosslinking, the visual outcome, and the treatment proposed. METHODS: A Medline (National Library of Medicine, Bethesda, MD, USA) search from October 2000 to October 2013 was performed to identify all articles describing infectious keratitis following corneal crosslinking treatment. Nineteen articles were selected. Ten articles reported infectious complications of corneal crosslinking treatment were included...

UNLABELLED: We report 4 eyes with infectious keratitis treated with riboflavin/ultraviolet-A irradiation (corneal collagen crosslinking [CXL]) in addition to medical treatment. In 2 eyes with bilateral keratitis, the fellow eye was treated with medical treatment alone. The other 2 eyes had refractory keratitis. The results suggest that CXL may be more worthwhile in cases refractory to conventional medical treatment. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE: No author has a financial or proprietary interest in any material or method mentioned...

We report a severe case of Staphylococcus lugdunensis (S. lugdunensis) keratitis presenting as suppurative keratitis in a 77-year-old woman. The patient's chief complaint was eye pain and decreased visual acuity in her right eye. Suppurative keratitis with a severe corneal abscess was diagnosed by a slit-lamp ophthalmic examination. The causative organism was identified as S. lugdunensis by bacterial culture, using a corneal abrasion specimen. She was treated with an intravenous drip infusion of ceftazidime and instillation of gentamicin sulfate ophthalmic solution (six times daily) and ofloxacin ophthalmic ointment (once daily before bedtime) as empiric therapy...
