Abstract

Abstract.

We report two cases of corneal coinfection with and sp. along with the review of published literature. A 35-year-old woman and 65-year-old man presented to the institute with corneal ulcer refractory for treatment with topical antibiotics. Microbiological examination revealed the presence of cysts along with septate, hyaline fungal filaments. After emergency therapeutic penetrating keratoplasty (TPK) in both, the corneal tissue was sent for histopathologic examination, which confirmed the presence of and fungal coinfection. One patient had a recurrence of fungal infection after TPK. In subjects with a rapid progression of mycotic ulcer, coinfection with other microorganisms including should be suspected. The two cases presented here emphasize the importance of microbiology in making prompt diagnosis and appropriate management of these cases at an early stage.
