A case of keratomycosis cured by topical fluconazole

A case of keratomycosis cured by topical fluconazole

Rinsho Ganka 45(1): 65-68

A 57-year-old male developed keratomycosis in his right eye after accidentally scratching the cornea. He was initially treated with oral flucytosine and topical pimaricin. Oral flucytosine had to be discontinued due to skin eruptions. Oral itraconazole was also dropped for the same reason. We started treatment with surgical debridement and topical fluconazole 4 weeks after onset of the disease. Prompt improvement set in. Signs of corneal infection disappeared 6 weeks later with inprovement of visual acuity from conting fingers to 0.3. No adverse reactions were noted during the treatment.
