Severe keratomycosis due to Fusarium solani induced by a telluric foreign body: About a case in moroccan Sahara

Severe keratomycosis due to Fusarium solani induced by a telluric foreign body: About a case in moroccan Sahara

Journal de Mycologie Medicale 21(3): 206-209

We report a case of severe keratitis due to Fusarium solani in a young man in the Sahara in Morocco where the climate is arid. This patient reported had a grain of sand in his right eye for a week after a sandstorm. On admission he had a corneal abscess. Despite rapid diagnosis and initiation of treatment with available antifungal drugs: amphotericin B and natamycin eye drops, the prognosis worsened and led to the enucleation of the right eye. Faced with a suspected eye infection after a microtrauma caused by grains of sand carried by a sandstorm, it is important to take biological samples to search for fungal infections among other. It is also important to have new triazole antifungal drugs available to treat ocular mycosis rapidly and effectively.
