Aureobasidium pullulans fungal keratitis following LASEK


Aureobasidium pullulans fungal keratitis following LASEK



Journal of Refractive Surgery 23(7): 727-729



ISSN/ISBN: 1081-597X

PMID: 17912946

To describe a patient who developed Aureobasidium pullulans keratitis following refractive laser epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK). A 52-year-old woman was referred to a tertiary care center 1 month after LASEK for treatment of a corneal ulcer that was unresponsive to conventional therapy. Mycology culture and fungal stain identified Aureobasidium as the infectious organism. The infection responded well to treatment with topical natamycin and systemic itraconazole. Treatment with topical natamycin and systemic itraconazole is effective against Aureobasidium pullulans keratitis.
