Abstract

In a 15-year-old boy a culture-proved keratitis after a corneal perforation healed without antifungal agents after corneal suturing and application of tissue glue. Eight months later a posterior corneal abscess developed. Diagnostic and therapeutic penetrating keratoplasty was performed when the lesion failed to respond to pimaricin. Cultures were positive for Acremonium potronii, the same fungus isolated from the original corneal laceration eight months previously. To our acknowledge, this is the first case report of a central corneal ulcer or abscess due to this specific organism.
